    Export book to ePub creates many copies of CSS classes

    Handycam Community Member

      I'm trying to do my first epub project, using Indesign CS5.5 Mac 10.7.

       

      I followed the instructions in the Help file, created a book, added all my chapters.  Set the first one to be style source.  Synchronized styles and swatches.

       

      However, when I export, I get many variations on what should be the same style, for example if my InDesign style was GRAPHIC, I now have GRAPHIC-1 through GRAPHIC-12 (one for each chapter).  I expected only one, across the book, so I can adjust all the GRAPHIC p tags at once in CSS.  Am I misunderstnding this feature?  If so, how can I accomplish this?

       

      I need to set specs in CSS for all instances of a given book element, and as it stands would need to find/replace across the book in BBEdit to make all similar elements use the same class.

       

      Thanks.
