Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Export options, part of Creating a Fixed-Layout EPUB.
…So, now we've done all that horrible prep work, that is making…sure that we have all the fonts installed and by the way if…you open up this document and you're missing the font, you can…also sync it with type kit, assumably you have CC the 2014 release.…That means that you also have Typekit.…If you don't have Typekit for whatever reason or you…are not online right now, that means you are not…going to be able to sync to this font and just…any type face that is open type or true type.…So, let's go ahead and export.…We are going to the File menu and…choosing Export and we want to choose ePub fixed Layout.…
We are going to save it right on the desktop file.…As lost highway-12, and we have a number of panels to look at, it's…kind of intimidating at first, but really there's only a few choices to make here.…For example, the choice of version for ePub…has been made for us, InDesign is only…going to export to the ePub 3 format,…which is the official format for fixed layout ePubs.…What's kind of cool is that we can choose which pages we want to export.…

Q: What's new in the 11/12/2013 course update?
A: Since this title was first recorded, many commercial third-party solutions have come to the marketplace that help InDesign users convert their print layouts to the fixed-layout EPUB format. We added a video about one of these, Rorohiko's ePubCrawler, to the "Starting with InDesign" chapter.
