Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the layout order to manage content flow, part of InDesign CS6 to EPUB, Kindle, and iPad.
Let's delve a little more deeply into working with the layout order when you are exporting…an InDesign file to EPUB.…I did show briefly in the previous video about how you can manipulate the position of frames…on a page to force InDesign to export the content in the order that you want. And let's…sort of expand on that with a longer project, sort of a single page.…Here we have the History of Art sample book that we have been working with, and let's…just refresh our memories about what this looks like, I am going to zoom out a bit with…Command+Minus or Ctrl+Minus. So we have a cover, we have a title page, Table of Contents…would normally go here but we haven't placed one yet, and then we have text that flows…from page-to-page, and I can turn on View > Extras > Show Text Threads, so we can see how that works.…
And we have some images, are inside the text, and basically it's about it, it goes all the…way to the end, we don't have an index or anything like that, but just have a little…flourish at the bottom.…
