    Text selection issue with EPUB fixed layout exported from InDesign

    mikemeli

      Hi All,

       

      I am having an issue with the EPUB fixed layout produced by InDesign. In most EPUB readers (i.e., iBooks, Mac Preview, and others) there is an issue when selecting text. The text selection flickers after every word. This is an issue with almost all EPUB readers. After doing some investigation, it seems that this issue maybe related to the HTML produced by the fixed layout EPUB option having "span" tags with absolute positioning for every word.

       

      Do you know if there is an option in InDesign that would solve this issue?

      also, is any of you aware of this issue? is this a known issue?

       

      Thanks.
