Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting InDesign objects to images, part of InDesign CC: EPUB Fundamentals.
…When you export from In Design to ePub, all of the texts, and…all of the graphics that are lying on the page,…that aren't from the master page, will appear in the ePub.…But sometimes, especially for a design kind of what we're looking at…right here that's not strictly a straight text with anchored graphics,…they'll end up looking a little weird in the ePub.…So I'm going to show you a couple ways to help get the results that…you want in your ePub.…Let's take a look at this document.…We just have a text frame.…We have a picture of my cute little doggie,…Barkley, with an arrow pointing to his little belly.…
And then we have two empty called unassigned frames up here…with a text frame overlapping the bottom one.…Let's go ahead and export this to ePub.…I'm just going to press Cmd+E to get to the export dialog box that would…be Ctrl+E on a PC, and I'll save it right on the desktop.…I already have one out here but I'm just going to write right over it,…which I love being able to do with ePubs.…It doesn't yell at you if you want to write over an existing one.…
