I have two questions regarding exporting to ePub through InDesign CS6 and would really appreciate help. I have spent several hours trying find answers.
When I group a picture with it’s caption, anchor the group into the text with a custom anchor, apply text wrap, apply custom rasterization and a float in the Object Export Options dialog box, the caption looks fuzzy in the epub after export. Under Custom Rasterization, I am choosing the defaults, JPG and 300 dpi. I realize that the text is being rasterized since I chose custom rasterization. But, this is the only way I can make the caption stay underneath the picture on export. How can a get the caption to stay with the picture and not becoming too pixelated?
Similarly, I have created a text frame (a callout) and would like the existing text in the ePub to wrap around this text frame with the callout. Again, I have applied a custom anchor to the callout text frame. I have also applied text wrap and in the Object Export Options dialog box, I have again chosen Custom Rasterization and applied a float to the text frame. When I export to ebub the text in the anchored text frame looks fuzzy. How can I anchor a text frame in an epub and export without the text becoming too pixelated.
In both scenarios above, the placement of the objects is correct in the exported ePub . . . My problem is the callout text and the caption looking too fuzzy in the anchored objects because they have been rasterized.
Thanks for your help.
In InDesign CS6 and CC, grouped objects did not use to maintain their positioning in exported EPUB and hence there was a need to rasterise the group in order to preserve appearance. This problem is resolved in InDesign 9.2 upgrade and there is no longer a need to set the group to rasterise and lose live text. Your workflow will work fine in InDesign 9.2 without rasterising.
