Hi! I'm super excited about the new ability of ID to export fixed layout epubs. I produce amongst other things hiking and mountaineering guidebooks and being able to sell and the n update these through the iTunes Store is a major boon.
To supply updates to my books it looks like the versioning feature would be useful (although I recently updated one book successfully by simply uploading a new file through iTunes Producer). I'm wondering how to include versioning meta info with my epubs? Or can I suggest that Adobe include versioning in an upcoming update to the plugin?
Apple describes including a prefix in the <package> tag of the OPF file. Where is this file? When I Export from ID all I get is the finished .epub file.
Thanks for any assistance and especially to Adobe for improving this capability - now please one more step and add versioning!
To access the OPF file you need to crack open the ePub. To do this there are various scripts such as https://www.rorohiko.com/wordpress/manuals/fixed-layout-epub-assistant-in-indesign-epubcra wler/
Lynda.com have useful tutorials on producing and editing fixed and flowable text ePubs from InDesign, which as a relative beginner, I think you'll find invaluable:
(I have no connection with Lynda.com!)
Thanks Derek I'll look into those.
