Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Fixed-layout EPUB workflow, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
- Let's take a look at the workflow…for creating Fixed-Layout EPUB's with InDesign.…First off, if you're using the 2014…Release of InDesign CC or later…you can expect very good results…just by exporting your document,…the same as if you were creating a pdf.…And you don't have to do a lot of extra work…to preserve the appearance of your layout.…Most text and graphics as well as…other page objects including master page items…will be in you fixed-layout EPUB.…You can also include interactivity…in the form of audio and video, animations,…buttons, and multi state objects.…
And you can preview how each of these things…will look and act, before you export…by viewing them in the EPUB interactivity preview panel.…If you're converting old print documents…to fixed-layout EPUB's…one thing that might require a significant amount of work…is dealing with fonts.…If your document contains older postscript…type one fonts you'll need to replace them…since they can't be embedded in an EPUB file.…Only open type fonts can be embedded in fixed-layout EPUB's.…
