Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of InDesign CS6 to EPUB, Kindle, and iPad.
If you are a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library or if you are watching…this tutorial on a DVD-ROM then you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title.…Each Chapter has its own folder and each video in that Chapter, if it uses exercise files,…has its own sub-folder. The exercise files are in these sub-folders.…Before you make any changes to them I suggest you duplicate them on your Desktop or anywhere…on your hard drive.…
Most of the exercise files are variations on a few different publications created in…InDesign or EPUBs created from them.…All the original linked images are in the Links folder and the main exercises folder,…right here, and I have also tried to gather all the scripts from various videos into a…single Scripts folder, you might find them duplicated, but here in the Scripts folder…they are all collected.…If you are a Monthly Member or an Annual Member of lynda.com you don't have access to the…exercise files, I'm sorry.…
But you can follow along from scratch with your own InDesign files and images.…
