It looks like you're trying to create a Fixed Layout EPUB for a Kindle Fire. InDesign creates a Fixed Layout EPUB 3 file which follows the EPUB standard. You can preview it on an iPad, in iBooks on Mavericks or Yosemite, in Google Chrome with the Readium plug-in and in some other EPUB readers. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't follow this standard.
yes, you are correct about what i am trying to accomplish. I will take your advice for testing the iBooks. that said, I'm trying to get the kindle version to work correctly. I don't know much about the process of preparing for Kindle and the documentation I've seen isn't much help to me (I'm not that technical). Any guidance for how i might resolve the issue described above? It's reallly unfortunate I can't just design in ID and then publish everywhere with the click of a button.
Thanks in advance for any help!
The best source of information I've found is Anne-Marie's video on creating Fixed Layout EPUB from InDesign CC 2014 on Lynda.com:
