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?
I have "view after export" checked. It opens in Text Edit.
Though I have emailed the document and got an error trying to view it iBooks.
I'm using a trail of CS6 Web and Design Premium. Mac Pro OS 10.8
I am getting an error message about missing fonts and that it will substitute (arial), but I get that on all my exports (PDF and I'm fine with the substitute). Also, I have photos in the chapter, so even if it didn't like the text - at all - I would think the photos would be in the export.
I'm at a loss what to check/do.
Any diretion would be great.
Thanks for getting back to me.
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:
Yes! Digital Editions is allowing me to view the file.
Thanks for this and the link to Liz Castro's book.
