Can you post a screenshot of a typical page within your catalog?
Hi Michael, thanks for replying.
I have cropped the margins, page number etc, to minimise scaling to a readable copy.
This page has 6 different paragraph styles, 2 are part of indexing TOC pages.
There are 5 stories, 3 tables, each table has a different qty of columns/headings.
The first table has data merged down 3 rows.
The first Part No has 3 images inserted into the last cell.
(in hindsight had I known that I would need to export for Epub I would have saved the 3 images as 1 jpg)
Throughout the 118 pages, there are cells with multiple images that would need to be saved as 1 image per cell,
or (not shown here) eg: 1 image used for 4 Part No's so 4 cells merged to represent 1 image for 4 Part No's.
I hope that all makes sense!
thanks again for your time.
As every file format has its individuality, same is true with epub.
Since we have reflowability as the main USP of epub, there's no such point of having page numbers in it.
Now, coming to your document, Paragraph styles(how so many they are),TOC Indexing are supported in InDesign.
Support for Various number of tables with different styles applied to them is supported to an extent.
Also, support for the merged cells and the image in a cell is there in epub too.
All you might need to take bit care about is layouting your document in InDesign so that it appears as desired in .epub.
So I think epub can be a good option to you.
thanks for your input, I will set page numbering on a separate layer in future so they can be hidden for the E-Pub version of the Catalogue.
