Using InDesign CC (v9.2) on Mac - Mavericks OS
I'm creating a navigational TOC for ebooks by using an InDesign Book. Currently, it contains 3 (soon to be more) InDesign documents.
One InDesign document that is included in the Book contains an Articles Panel defining the display order of the objects in that document. It happens to be the first document in that Book, so it is the source. The other 2 InDesign documents in the Book do not have anything in their Articles Panels.
When the Book is exported to EPUB, the objects from the source InDesign document are out of order - it's as though the Book ignores the document's Articles Panel.
When I tried exporting to EPUB from the Book and selected Content order: Same as Articles Panel, the resulting EPUB contains the source InDesign document with the Articles Panel (and the objects are in the proper order) but the other 2 InDesign documents are not displayed.
What can be done to have the Book honor the Articles Panel of that inDesign document?
From what I understood from your post, you have article created in source document but not in other documents. While exporting to EPUB you had selected reading order to be based on Articles Panel but only the items in source document got exported and the other two documents appeared blank. This is because there are no articles created for other two documents.Whatever will be the items in the articles, only those will be exported and since articles are not present for other documents, no content was exported which was part of these documents.
Please let me know if your problem is different.
You are correct in understanding my situation - and thanks for the solution.
I added Articles Panels in the other 2 documents, and the exported epub file displayed what I wanted.
