This is a Navigational Table of Contents for the EPUB that we have been working with quite…a bit in this title. You can hide it and show it.…And my problem with this Navigational Table of Contents is that this one is too long.…I know that it is there because that is how InDesign created it.…InDesign spilt these out according to the TOC style that I specified when I exported it to EPUB.…The TOC style pulled in this headline right here just like it pulled in this nice and short headline here.…
As the EPUB producer, you do not have the ability to edit the text of your client's books, but…you do have some facility in editing some of the navigational things.…So how would we fix this?…We need to edit the file called toc.ncx, because we are working with an EPUB2 file here.…So here in the Finder here is the EPUB, and here it is expanded, I am just going to go…a head and edit the toc.ncx file from the expanded version.…
I'll drag and drop that right onto TextWrangler.…Let's take a closer look at this, then we hide all that other stuff behind you.…
