I'm making copies of a JPEG image and using this image in multiple places in my inDesign document. In the links panel, I see the disclosure triangle that shows all the pages that I'm using that link. So, all good so far.
When I export the document to ePub, I would have expected there to be a single version of the JPEG file in the resulting ePub file. However, I have multiple copies of the JPEG file, all the same size, but with different names.
So, if my original JPEG file is 1234.jpg, I'll have the following derivatives of that file in the "images" folder of the ePub:
Then in the CSS and XHTML pages, the different uses of 1234.jpg will each reference their own version of the file, so:
Page 1 will reference 1234.jpg
Page 2 will reference 12341.jpg
Page 8 will reference 12343.jpg
This seems very wasteful to me, as my ePub is now much larger because it has all of the duplicated JPEG files. Is there any way to avoid this, or is this expected behaviour?
Oh, just to be clear... I can go into the CSS and XHTML pages in the resulting image and change all of the references to the original image "1234.jpg" and everything is fine.
I have ID CC 2014, 10.1.0.71
I am exporting to Fixed Layout ePub.
According to a previous post, this issue was addressed with the 10.1.0.70 release but that's not my experience, so wondering if there is any other solution than going through and editing the CSS generated code?
