7. How did you set up your text? With paragraph styles? Character Styles? Did you scale it in InDesign?
Please give here the answer!
Please check against different EPUB readers on different devices, not only ADE because this program is not reliable.
Digital Editions? Which version?
Willi: I used paragraph styles in InDesign - and what do you mean by scale in InDesign?
I have used a variety of page sizes for documents, ensured all fonts are embedded. I used Digital Editions 3.0 - the latest version.
Moved to InDesign EPUB forum.
DO NOT use ADE 3. It is not capable of displaying fixed layout epubs (as you've already seen). Try Readium for Chrome or you can ask to join the ADE prerelease program.
I believe iBooks can also be used but you'll need a Mac or an iOS device to use it.
In the font properties you could scale fonts, this feature is not supported with EPUBs.
Page size and font size are related with fixed layout, because the whole page will look the same on different devices, it will only scale up or down, so you will have on an iPhone a smaller font than on the iPad or the 32" PC screen. The size of the font will vary because fixed layout does not reflow.
Thank you both. I just expected ADE to work with InDesign.
Just shows how stupid I can be
ADE is in the process of being developed to support EPUB 3 fully. Apparently, it carries the baggage that it is also used to define the standard for readers that use licensed Adobe technology for protecting books so it doesn't adapt as fast as some other readers.
It would be useful to tell users what works, and what doesn't.
Along with the people who have contributed to this thread I have wasted time (not for the first time I have to say). Adobe seem too cavalier about their customers. Take our money then let us sort out any problems.
Bad business approach.
I think that’s unfair.
At the speed the technology is moving today, it’s incumbent on users to stay up to date on what works and what doesn’t.
You are guilty of making assumptions after testing a file using one piece of software.
Bob: trade descriptions is all I ask. Adobe knew that ADE didn't work - they just failed to tell us. Why? A simple warning would have sufficed. Adobe has an increasingly cavalier attitude. They updated Premiere Pro but didn't tell anyone that would no longer work with 32 bit. They refuse to respond to calls for Linux versions.
I pay good money for Creative Suite - I've searched Adobe's advice pages and it does not say anything about these weaknesses.
Buyers beware? Or go elsewhere?
I get the frustration but if you want to be involved in this you need to
keep up with the rapid development of things. Live and learn.
After all, the rest of us were aware of this, right?
That is very patronising - and unnecessary.
It shows exactly why I criticise Adobe about its client management.
Tell enough of us that we are stupid and slowly we will disappear.
There was nothing rapid about this.Adobe gave up rights control ages ago yet it let ADE remain unchanged - it is still not been modified.
In my first response to you I told you there was a prerelease program for ADE.
And for the record I don’t work for Adobe. My opinions are my own and do not represent anyone else’s.
