    ID CS5: Numbered lists export to epub incorrectly

    1993 M

      Hello,

       

      I'm working with Indesign CS5 to convert a print textbook to epub format. I have quite a few numbered lists to make. For example:

       

      1.

      2.

      3.

       

      and outline-styled lists

       

      I.

           A.

                1.

                2.

           B.

      II.

           A.

           B.

       

      I followed a very helpful video by Anne-Marie Concepcion about creating paragraph styles for each numbering "level." It has worked fine on the screen, but when I export to epub and preview the book on an iPad, some of the numbering messes up. Normal numbering (eg: simple 1, 2, 3 lists) work fine, but when I have outline-styled lists, it appears like this:

       

      1.

           1.

                1.

                1.

           1.

       

      How  can I fix this? Any help would be appreciated!

      Edit: I found a somewhat similar question online that ended up fixing the problem. If you are wondering how to fix it, go to the export epub dialogue window and select the option to convert the bullets and numbering to text.
