Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Maintaining text frame spacing, part of InDesign CS6: EPUB Kindle and iPad.
One of the things that takes a lot of new EPUB designers by surprise is what happens…with spacing in between text frames when you export from InDesign to EPUB.…I have a document open, and we're just going to take a quick peek at what happens when…we exported as is to EPUB.…Now if you're following along with the exercise files note that this document actually has…two pages, and we're only going to export page1 to EPUB. And if you were paying attention…the last chapter you know the way to do that is with the Articles panels.…
So I have already set that up, and we have an article for page1 and an article for page2.…Make sure that only page 1 is checked, that's what we're going to export.…So go to File > Export to EPUB, I'll press Command+E or Ctrl+E, History-of-Art that's…fine on the desktop.…Make sure that Content Order is set to same as Articles Panel, not this one, that way only…page 1 will be exported.…View EPUB after Exporting that's fine, that's fine and here we'll go ahead and include Local…Overrides for now and click OK.…
