Missing paragraph breaks/spaces when exporting ePUB

Hi

 

Before I updated Indesign I had no issue with exporting ePUB files. Then afterwards, I started losing my breaks and spaces

 

Chapter Title

<paragraph break>

Text

 

Now when exported it looks like this:

 

Chapter Title

Text

 

This doesn't happen if I export for PDF and the XHTML of the ePUB file has the paragraphs in the code.

    Why would you want a blank paragraph in an epub or any other document for that matter?

     

     

     

    That’s what paragraph spacing and CSS margin-top and margin-bottom are for.

     

     

     

    You’ll be a lot happier with the results if you do it without the blank paragraphs.

    Are you allowing InDesign to write the CSS? Is it updated to 8.0.1?

    So, you’re saying you have space after or before, you’re choosing auto for tags and the css is not writing any margin-top or margin-bottom?

     

     

     

    How are you testing this epub?
