I've moved this to the InDesign EPUB forum
@ Steve, thank you for moving my post to the correct forum.
It seems that you are using CS6 version. Is is correct?
Fixed Layout export was dropped out in CC release. We have added support for fixed layout in June release(Adobe InDesign CC 2014).
Thank you for the reply.
We are using CC. We just downloaded and installed it about 2 weeks ago; shouldn't it be the June release?
Thanks for the details. Good to know that you are on the latest release!
We had some challenges with ME (Arabic) and Japanese text (mainly vertical text) and we could not fix it for the June release as fixing the basic problems in Roman text turned up as a higher priority item for us. Now that you have identified some of the problems with ME live text, we will surely take this as an item for us to work upon. If you have some more feedback about things not working in ME locale in Reflowable EPUB, we would be happy to hear about those as well.
Thanks for the info.
Can I consider this an official reply and quote it to management or do I have to go through another channel for that?
Pooja is one of the engineers who is developing the EPUB capabilities in InDesign CC. You should consider this as official a reply as you could get!
Pooja is absolutely correct.
There are a variety of limitations at this point in Roman/J/ME which we have been working to improve with our aim being that update-to-update to InDesign CC for both Reflowable and Fixed Layout we keep getting better. We've been focusing on Roman first and have had our hands full with that.
The team as benefited immensely by being able to work with real customer customer document - would you be willing to share some of yours with us? We only use them for our own internal testing and do not share them outside of Adobe (and typically only the team). It makes a big difference to us.
If so, please contact Pooja directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will make arrangements for receiving them. Typically we just need you to package the document (or a subset of it, whatever you feel comfortable with) so we get the necessary assets and fonts.
Help us make this better.

Hi Douglas & Pooja,
Thank you for the reply and the confirmation.
I'll see what I can do about the sample documents.
