I have a book .indb file. Has 335 chapters in it. But each page is small. If I try to export a file for digital editions it skipps pages at after a certain page. I checked out which page was the last processed. Then checked the other pages out all around it. There is nothing wrong with these pages. So I made two smaller book files of the .indb type.
Thinking I would narrow down the problem page.
Part1: export created an .epub file... no pages skipped!
Part2: export said it skipped the last three pages. Still gave me visible pages up to the last three pages. Just what I thought if the error stated ...it skipped 3 pages.
So I thought it could be memory. I only have 1gig of ram right now.
I decided to see if I reduced the number of chapters or pages in Part2 and included the last three that were skipped maybe they would process.
So somewhere way above the last 3 ... I deleted 5 chapters .. they were up toward the beginning of the file. Nowhere near the last three.
The entire part2 of the book file excluding the 5 I delete still including the last three pages processed. There was nothing wrong with the skipped pages. So my question is. .. could it be because I only have 1gig of ram?
When a book file exports to digital editions, all chapters are being held in memory right... so maybe it couldn't process the last three. Any thoughts?
I really hate to tell you this. InDesign CS4 was the first version to support export to EPUB. Virtually no one used it. It was very limited and very buggy.
You really need to be using a later version of InDesign, especially with a very large book. If you're having problems, I'm not surprised.
There were improvements in CS5, and major improvements in CS5.5, CS6 and CC.
Thanks... yes I know ill soon be using my son's 5.5.
I was just wondering about memory limitations with 1 gig ram.
Ya know ms ybe it couldn't finish.
