I have worked with dps a couple of years now and now that Adobe removes Single Edition I have to look at other tools. EPUB3 fixed layout appears to be an alternative solution.
I've been reading up on the web and checked on Lynda courses, but there is one thing I wonder about.
How should I think about the size of the InDesign document and the size of the body text when I create a EPUB3 with fixed-layout?
A couple things to keep in mind with EPUB3 Fixed Layout:
Unlike EPUB reflowable, FXL doesn't change size. You'll need to optimize your InDesign layout for the device most likely to view it—for example, an iPad, since it's the dominant device.
Like with DPS, you'll need to pick a font size larger than you'd use for print.
As with DPS, it's very important to do some tests on your target device to optimize both dimensions and font size.
Final Note: If you're in North America, this is a good time to buy an iPad since there are a lot of Black Friday sales coming up!
thanks for the reply.
Suspected that it was so. Then the problem becomes to decide which device I want it to look best on. Guess I choose Ipad.
I live in Sweden but I just got a new iPad:-)
