Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Reflowable EPUB workflow, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
- [Voiceover] Let's take a look at the steps involved…in creating Reflowable EPUB eBooks with Adobe InDesign.…The first phase involves some prep work…that you should deal with…before you really start working with your eBooks content.…First, you need to make sure…that all your files are up to date.…Convert any old layout files…to the most recent version of InDesign CC.…So you can take full advantage of the new features…and bug fixes that Adobe's constantly adding to InDesign.…You should also take the time to confirm…that all the content you want to use in your eBook…is properly licensed for that purpose.…
This includes images…and any fonts that you were planning to embed.…It's also a good idea to make sure…that all your files are properly named…with a cross platform naming convention,…made up of only letters, numbers, underscores, and hyphens.…The second phase involves preparing text in InDesign.…This will help you get exactly the content you want…in the right order and in a structure…so it can be cleanly formatted with CSS.…
