So all I was really after was a way to preserve my font choice for my title page and chapter headings as the converter program I have won't as of now. I downloaded InDesign to give it a shot and while it is probably far more program that I need, or can even handle, it does preserve my fonts...but there is another issue I am running into. Everytime I try to export my document as an EPUB it doubles the content-literally. The the book finishes then startes all over again making the entire file twice as big. What setting is this and how do i turn it off?
It's not built-in behavior, so it suggests the text ends up twice in your ePub because it occurs twice in your document.
Check your original document for overset text. Maybe you placed or pasted the entire contents twice, and never noticed the red warning + at the end of the text (as well as several possible other warnings, such as when exporting to PDF).
Could it also be a stroke on the text as in a fake bold?
