Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing the sequence of content: Articles panel, part of InDesign CC 2014: EPUBs.
…When you export your InDesign to EPUB, by default InDesign will…use the page geometry to decide the order of the content.…If it's looking at this page it's going to go left to right and export this first and…then this because these frame edges appear furthermost…to the left and then this and then this.…And you can manipulate these items.…You could move things around, so they by force are exported first.…But there is another easier way to manage the RUN…order that does not involve you messing up the lab.…
So, if one of your goals is to create a single…InDesign file, that can be used for both print and epub.…Then you kind of love this feature and that…is the article's panel, let me undo that change…I just did.…The articles panel is under the Window menu.…The very first item right here, Articles.…Now, I have created an epub workspace and I have added the Articles panel to it.…So I can open it from there as well.…Let me detach it so we can concentrate on it.…The article's count comes with a nice little…bit of instructions that said how to use it.…
