Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Cleaning up text with Find/Change and the FindChangeByList script, part of InDesign CS6 to EPUB, Kindle, and iPad.
Now depending on the state of your InDesign layout, you may have a lot of clean up to…do or maybe just very little.…There are two kinds of cleanups that I want to address in this video, and I will show…you how to clean them up manually and also automate some of your work with a free script…that gets included with InDesign.…So the first thing that we want to clean up are runs of returns and spaces and tabs.…These are normally completely ignored by a web browser, which as you know most EPUB readers…are essentially reading a website inside your EPUB. And that's why it's a good idea to always…work with hidden characters showing as I have here, so under Type, hidden characters are showing.…
We have some paragraphs separated by double returns, this one by triple return, and then…this gets a whole bunch of tabs and then this is a bunch of spaces.…So you don't need to do anything with this document, I am just showing you what's going…to happen when you export this to EPUB, which I will go ahead and do right now.…
