Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting local formatting to styles, part of InDesign CC 2014: EPUBs.
…We're looking at a very short one…page document, and it looks innocent doesn't it?…Looks like everything has been styled correctly.…We take a peek into paragraph and character styles we can…see that, somebody did a good job of creating all these styles.…So, we click in one of these we can see yeah, body style looks good.…Let's export this to epub.…With the command or control E we'll save it right onto the desktop and…use our usual settings E pub 3 view E pub after exporting…under advanced we want to generate the CSS I always include the fonts.…
And turn off preserve local over rides, because…local over rides are the spawn of the devil.…They will mess you up, so you only want to use character and paragraph style text.…Click okay. Whoa!…What happened there?…well, apparently we have a case of many over rides, or some dangerous over rides.…Got this entire paragraph, apparently the actual…style is bright green Comic Sans Bold.…We had a hidden link that we didn't even know was a link here.…
Our headline got really small.…
