    how do I get rid of author info at end of book when converting in epub

    sanibelric

      I get the author info at end of book when converting to epub.  The more time I save the file, the more lines are created.  How do I get rid of these?  Thanks

          Do you mean author information appears in the InDesign file or in the EPUB file?

           

          I've never heard of such a thing. Please use the camera icon in the editor to attach a screen capture.

            When I open the epub in Digital Editor it creates the following at the end of the last chapter:

              You're going to have to provide more information.

               

              First, what is Digital Editor? Do you mean Adobe Digital Editions?

               

              Is this being created from a single InDesign document or from a book file with chapters? What version of InDesign? What settings did you use in the export dialog? Where was that author information entered in your InDesign file?

               

              Please attach as screen capture as I suggested earlier.

                This is not "Author Info", it is just plain text in unconnected text frames in your document.

                 

                InDesign doesn't consider 'pages' when exporting text to ePub format. It merely writes out all continuous text of one story, then the next, and so on.

                 

                Someone didn't create page headers or footers on Master Pages, but planted those on the pages themselves, in separate text frames. Delete these frames if you don't want to have them show up in your ePub format.

                  Thanks Jongware, this solved my problem.  Had numerous text frames added to the file, removed them and all is well.
