Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing between fixed-layout and reflowable formats, part of InDesign CC 2015: EPUB Fundamentals.
- Now I mentioned before that when you export…to EPUB in InDesign…you have your choice of either exporting to Fixed-Layout…or to Reflowable.…And at this course is all about Reflowable EPUBs,…but what about this other interesting format?…What is that for? And when would you use it?…The good news is that I actually have a couple courses…on creating Fixed-Layout EPUBs on lynda.com,…so if you go to my author page…and scroll down a bit you'll see I have one course…that deals specifically with creating them from InDesign…and I have another course that's all about…Creating a Fixed-Layout EPUB from scratch.…
Like writing your own HTML, or converting a PDF,…where we cover all this in detail.…In my Fixed out EPUBs with InDesign course…I have a specific video that's all about comparing…Reflowable and Fixed-Layout,…but I thought that this title also deserved…that same kind of video.…So what I'm looking at right now…is a publication that is a White Paper…produced by this company called Globe Bank.…It has probably an equal amount of text and images.…
