Thanks for wreaking it.
Coming from CS3 to CS6
Because CS4 got it wrong
CS5 and CS5.5 both although fixing CS4 mistakes broke other things.
List of things that annoy
Tried the epub output options based on chapter paragraph style.
I consider this broken although it finally splits the document.
I expected the .xhtml files to be named according to whatever was on the ChapterParagraph Style
Massively disappointed, no point using it. I'll go back to my apple script which splits and places in a book file
Capital letters in Stylesheet name no longer get converted to lowercase (spent 1/2 Hour working this one out) thanks very much.
Carriage returns are included…NOT COOL!!!
Changing the folder name from images to image…NOT COOL!!!
That's everything I've found so far...Mind you I haven't finished cleaning it out of uneeded crap...
I want my CS3 back...OMG what have I done.
Also, who was the bright spark that decided to remove Magin-top from the code... unforgivable...
I go to all the trouble of making good style sheets in ID. And get it across to epub, and ALL the margin-tops are gone....
I'm so angry about this right now....I upgrade to CS6 for epub...
magin-top has been discussed elsewhere, Marcus. I don't have a link handy.
Depending on who you ask it's either a bug or a feature, but my philosophy remains unchanged...write your own CSS. CS6 makes it very easy to map styles to tags and add as many CSS files as you need.
If you want to truly get your point across however, I suggest doing it here: https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
Although I'm part of the prerelease, I was unable to do any testing on this edition. This I truly regret now.
Mapping style to css is all well and good when you have 1 or 2 epubs to do.
However when your trying to compete with cheaper countries it makes it time consuming and unprofitable. Especially when you handling between 10 and 20 a week.
Using the styles from preexisting ID documents makes for alot of variations to concider. So using the style sheets from ID IS the only way.
Thanks for your reply.
And now I find when I do an epub in CS6 using the book feature
it's adding a -1 to -howevermanyfilesareinthebook to the end of all Span classes and P classes.
This had killed all my preset Grep search and replaces.
Why would you breack it so badly Adobe...WHY!!!!!
IT'S TOTALLY UNUSEABLE NOW FOR ANY KIND OF PRODUCTION WORK.
(maybe it's ok for the little back yarders who do their 1 ebook)
Who do I talk to about this?????
IS ADOBE READING FORUMS!!!!!!
I NEED A CONTACT
I am the production department for a medium-sized publisher and need CSS style sheets to survive. We just upgraded from CS5 to CS6 and I've found that CS6 is practically unusable for epubs! What is going on Adobe??? I appreciate you are trying to make it easier for individuals to make unique books, but you have royally screwed larger production departments that use series CSS sheets to pump out books.
1.) What has happened to the list feature? I used to be able to "apply bullets" and use a paragraph style and things would map beautifully to Unordered Lists. Now there are extra bullets applied.
2.) Despite the fact that I have "Keep Overrides" unchecked and use an external style sheet, there are character overrides being applied and they are uniquely named for each one! There's no way to globally fix this without hours of extra work!
3.) Each image is being renamed with a unique div class. So there goes my ability to fomat pictures globally with my tried and true CSS.
4.) As mentioned above, the capitalization conversion to lowercase disappeared for paragraph styles, but for some unknown reason is maintained in character and object styles. Why the unnecessary change?
This is a MAJOR headache and I will go back to using CS5 as CS6 is unusable for large scale production. It's fine to move forward with individuals creating books on a small scale, but why delete the options that made those of us creating on a large scale to use our own CSS?
Please, please, please, please, make a bug fix that allows you to completely bypass the InDesign CSS and attach your own as there was in CS5. This renaming is a version killer and I won't recommend it to anyone.
