Unsuccessful export from trial version of CS6 InDesign to EPUB

I'm  hoping it's because I have a trial version of InDesign. When I export from InDesign to EPUB 2.0.1


I'm following instructions from this video, but all I get is an empty file. No error message, just the blank file.

I'm trying to test how anchors work for layout in an ebook. tain-formatting-when-exporting-your-epub-from-indesign-cs6/


Is it because it is the trial version? I'm hoping so, but if not, any thoughts on what am I missing?


Thanks in advance,

    It shouldn't be the trial version, which is fully functional. I don't think I've ever created a totally empty (blank?) EPUB file.


    How are you viewing the EPUB file you created?

    You need to learn more about creating EPUB files. You also need a real EPUB reader.


    You can download Adobe Digital Editions for free:



    It reads EPUB files. iBooks is OK but there are reasons it may reject a file which is a perfectly valid EPUB file.


    I'd suggest Liz Castro's EPUBs about creating EPUBs in InDesign:
