          When you talk about EPUBs you have to give us more information:

          1. Which version of InDesign (also the dot version as there are many different settings)
          2. What are the settings you are exporting it.
          3. Are the images anchored or not, are they in the article panel or not?
          4. I don't understand what you mean with My file has some pdf images earler when export the file pdfs images shows different-2 as is like pdf but now it show one pdf all the instence.

            I am using one pdf for images that pdf file has 30 pages which i used in rectangle frame.

              Hi,

               

              We would like to understand why this is happening. Would it be possible for you to share your file with us? You can upload packaged InDesign document as a zip file to dropbox and share the link with me. My email id is pja@adobe.com.

                  Hi Atul,

                   

                  Thanks for sharing your files. It helped me identify the problem.

                  In InDesign 9.2 version, we shipped a feature wherein same images if used more than once used to be present only once in the EPUB package. The images need to be exactly same for reuse to happen. In case of multi-page PDf, this reuse is incorrecly happening and the code thinks that it is the same PDF so keeps repeating the same image in the entire EPUB. I have logged a bug for this at my end.

                  As a workaround, you can specify some attribute on different images like stroke so that we can bypass the resuse mechanism. Select the graphic frame and assign it a fill color. Do this for every frame but make sure the color is different for each frame. I know this is cumbersome, but this is the only way you can avoid reuse from happening.

                  Please try once and let me know if this solves your problem.

                   

                  Regards,

                  Pooja

                    Hi Pooja,

                     

                    Thanks for your quick reply.

                    New feature becomes a problem for me. But earlier version is fine with me. IF i changed every frame colour it will take too much time because i have multi-pages pdfs approx 200-300 pages in one pdf. Can suggest me some other way.

                     

                    And one more thing can i uninstall that upadates from my InDesing. if possible please let me know.

                     

                    Thanks

                      In your case, I would save a copy of the file and in Acrobat Pro extract pages, as single pages and place these single files. I would not recommend to go backward as other problems will come up and I would expect that the bug fix might take at least several weeks.
