I have just upgraded to InDesign CS6 and want to use the epub feature to convert existing InDesign documents to pubs. I want to tweak the css file, but I must be blind because after I export it to epub, all I see is the epub file. No css file.
I tried changing the extension to .zip, but when I use the Archive utility to unzip, it hangs up and I have to force quite. (OSX 10.8.1)
I exported the InDesign file to HTML and can view it that way. However, the css says my table has no borders, yet they appear in the epub file. So maybe it's not the css, but something in the InDesign file?
On a Macintosh, you need to use a script to uncompress and recompress the CSS file.
You could also use a utility like BBEdit or a program like Dreamweaver or Oxygen Author to edit the EPUB components.
Sounds like you need to learn a little more about creating EPUB from InDesign. Two best choices:
Ebooks from Elizabeth Castro:
Or videos by Anne-Marie Concepcion on Lynda.com.
I do need to learn more! I will check out the ebook you recommended. I've viewed all the videos on Adobe TV about it, but of course MY files don't seem to convert as easily as theirs! I finally downloaded Unzip from the App store and managed to open the epub cs file. All the cs reads correctly, but my epub still has borders around the table and cells. Not sure where to go from here.
