Are you positive you’re running InDesign CC2014.1 on your Windows machine?
Ctrl+click help>about InDesign. What is the full version number?
2014.1 Liberar (which means release in Portuguese)
The Creative Cloud says that it is the lastest version :/
And you're sure you're exporting to Fixed Layout EPUB?
I've branched this to a new discussion
Another question. Is this the same file that works on the Mac?
Yes, fixed layout and the same file..
All functions and animations do not work, even the most basic as button to move the pages and slideshow..
Am I forgetting something?
Because on the Mac it seems to be easy
I work on Mac and Windows all day long and there is zero difference between them.
If you post the file somewhere I’ll take a look here.
I discovered something new. If I export the epub on my PC and open with the Mac it works!
If I open epub with Readium on the PC it does not work, but with the Readium on Mac it works.
Whatever is happening is unique to your system.
But what do you think can it be?
Plug-in or somethin?
It works with Adobe Digital Edition, but with readium and ePub preview on InDesign don't..
Is it just this file or all of them?
If it’s all of them try trashing your preferences.
i have the same problem with the buttons,when i export an epub3 (fixed layout) with Indesign cc 2014.0
When i have an swf preview, there isn't problem.But when i export it,only hyperlinks are working.
You should update to InDesign CC 2014.1 (released in October) to fix problems with hyperlinks.
Thank you Mr Werner!
I have this issue with no button interactivity.
I have tested it on 2 computers (desktop & laptop) and on 3 versions of InDesign. (CC 2014: 10.0.0.70, CC 2014: 10.2.0.69, CC 2015: 126.96.36.199).
SWF/PDF buttons work but not HTML-based buttons - but they will get the button symbol & dashed frame once assigned as buttons in InDesign.
My testing document is basic: a button on page 1 to go to page 2 and vice versa. It neither works in the EPUB interactivity preview panel nor in an exported EPUB (fixed layout) in Readium. Note that I have opened other EPUB3 docs in Readium and there is no problem with them (samples from Azardi website). I have tried this with InDesign documents set up with the 'web' preset and with the 'digital publishing' preset.
I have also tried to create just one button in InDesign, exporting it as HTML with the 'web' preset. (The button should open a Google webpage.) When using the built-in HTML export option, this button does not work in Firefox. When using an HTML-export extension from in5, it worked in Firefox (the first button to do so, hooray!!!) Incidentally, I have no other problems with browser usability.
Yesterday an Adobe person remotely accessed my computer during chat support and confirmed that my buttons were not working (except in PDFs / SWF). I sent him a copy of both my InDesign file and my exported EPUB and to my surprise, he said they both worked on his machine. Unfortunately, he couldn't offer a solution, other than to say that it seemed to be a localised issue. However, his follow-up email said:
"I’ve checked and found that the HTML file exported from InDesign further needs to be edited in Dreamweaver for proper layout and interactivity. It is known issue."
I haven't heard further from Adobe so I don't know what the 'known issue' is. It also has me scratching my head as to why it still worked on his machine but not either of mine.
I really don't want to have to do a clean install of my operating system (Win7, BTW) and all other programs. I'd really appreciate any help on this because without HTML button function, InDesign is useless to me for anything other than print.
I've also posted about this in the general InDesign forum (since it affects HTML buttons, not just EPUB) - but this post is more up-to-date. https://forums.adobe.com/message/8118219#8118219.
By the way, I have already tried trashing preferences.
I suspect I'm just talking to myself on this old thread so I'll start a new one.
Before I do, I'll add an update in case others find themselves in my shoes and end up here.
This is the latest email from Adobe InDesign Support about this matter:
"By “known issue” I mean, this is an expected behavior and it is already reported earlier. The Interactivity would work fine in SWF base however, if you need it in HTML, that the file can be edited in Dreamweaver, further, for the kind of interactivity or layout you need. You can say it is a limitation of HTML export from InDesign."
So there is a known issue about HTML export from InDesign (which, of course, affects EPUB export).
I've tried asking for more detail - is it the manifest file, is it XHTML.... Would be awesome if others knew more about this. I can't be the only one having this issue if Adobe Support says it is a "known issue".
I'm still totally confused how others have seemed able to use InDesign EPUBs (like the video trainer for TrainSimple.com or the Adobe Support guy I sent my files to - see earlier post).
I have had the same issue. I created an HTML document with video's and interactivity and it worked when I released it to my customer but they just recently claimed it no longer worked. I tried it (rebuilding the whole project) to no avail. Any ideas?
neal_oob, what kind of document are you producing? If you're producing a website using Adobe applications don't use InDesign use Dreamweaver or Muse. If you're producing an eBook, is it a FXL ePub or maybe Publish Online or what?
Well ... years ago I found using ID for producing HTML ... it's a document for viewing videos. I was hoping to switch them to a PDF because the videos are training videos on how to use their product. Everything was working perfectly for year and recently my customer said it's not working. I have tried all the training videos I produced for them ... all of where the links work to the pages but the videos will not play. (they are set to FLV) NOW they are complaining.
Flash won't work on iPads and IPhones. Have you tried the format MP4 for the video?
Derek, I did try MP4 on my last project ... I thought of that same thing (even changing the format of the video) but still had the same problem. I went ahead and chatted with Adobe about the problem and sent them the files ... I will know in a couple of days what they found out. I think it's probably that my process ... for instance, for this situation with all the videos I am using, i'd probably need to use Dreamweaver or Muse to create an HTML files rather that solely on ID. Here's another thing I created a pdf of the same projects and it worked perfectly. I know this would be the answer but trying to convince my customer to pay for this is another's day battle :-).
I'm not aware of your content and whether it's free or to be paid for, but have a look at Fixed Layout ePub and Publish online.
