I am trying to export a fixed layout book using InDesign. I used the InDesign CC2014. I am working on a PC. I can read my previously hand-coded version done with Dreamweaver and validated with Pagina using the Firefox epub reader extension.
The exported version from InDesign does not have fixed text. The text has spread out all over the page and some of the words are actually scrambled. Some letters are on top of each other. The file itself validates with no errors using Pagina. But it is not readable as fixed layout using the Firefox Epub Reader Extension.
Is this a problem with my epub reader? Or is this a problem with the export?
Has anyone tested a file on a PC with an epub reader other than Calibre or Readium?
Is your Fixed layout EPUB looking fine on Readium? I would suggest you to try this on iBooks or on Readium on Mac. If it is looking fine here, then probably it is device/reader issue we should look into.
I just tested on Readium and it looks fine there using the Readium app on Google Chrome. (PC version). I'm not releasing books on Apple, so I will not be testing on Mac.
I will probably be testing for Kobo, I was hoping for a browser extension on Mozilla that it would work on.
