    EPUB export: Is there a way to remove UUID once ISBN is configured?

    DinahSanders Level 1

      I'm doing EPUB export from InDesign CS6 8.0.1 on OS X 10.7.5.

       

      Validation with epubcheck is throwing this error:

      WARNING: /Users/dinah/Desktop/Art of the Shim.epub/OEBPS/toc.ncx: meta@dtb:uid content '978-0-9839980-3-7' should conform to unique-identifier in content.opf: 'urn:uuid:37AA3F7D-1626-451E-847F-8F3F939EC105'

       

      I could only find one place (EPUB export dialog) to assign the ISBN as unique identifier, but InDesign is clearly hanging onto the UUID it generated:

       

      content.opf contains

      <dc:identifier id="bookid">urn:uuid:FDF01DD0-05B9-43E8-8991-18A3D0AE6749</dc:identifier>
      <dc:identifier>978-0-9839980-3-7</dc:identifier>

       

      toc.ncx correctly just has

      <meta name="dtb:uid" content="978-0-9839980-3-7" />

       

      Could anyone point me in the right direction for fixing this within InDesign? I'd love to get a valid EPUB output before I do any tinkering in the EPUB files outside of InDesign.

       

      Thanks,

      Dinah
