Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Fixed-layout EPUBs, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
- In addition to reflowable EPUBs,…you can also use InDesign CC to create a fixed layout EPUB…that will retain the entire look of your document…including all the colors, fonts…and images similar to a PDF.…Fixed layout EPUBs are often used for publications…where it's really important to maintain…control over the layout.…Things like children's books,…cook books, text books and the like.…Here's an example of a fixed layout EPUB…that was created with InDesign CC,…it's called, "Window Seat, The Art of Digital Photography…"and Creative Thinking," by Julieanne Kost.…
And it includes lots of beautiful photos…that the author took through the windows…of airplanes during flight.…And I can click through it to see some of those photos.…It has a navigational TOC,…to jump to various parts of the book.…And there are a few different page layouts,…including a single column with running headers…and full bleed photos.…There are various grids of photos.…Full page images,…three column layouts,…side bars and so on.…
