I'm a digital publishing quasi-newbie, just dipping my head into fixed-layout EPUBs for the first time. I've had good luck so far, but seem to be tripping just a few feet from the finish line.
My book consists of 6 InDesign documents (front matter, ch1, ch2, ch3, ch4. back matter). I have an in-line TOC in my front matter doc, using a style called LiP_fix TOC. I also created a style called EPUB to generate a Nav TOC for my EPUB package.
When I use the File/Export menu, I can select the EPUB Nav TOC style I have created, but I only export the document that currently has focus in ID.
When I export to EPUB from the Book panel, I can export the whole book (which is what I want), but I do not have access to my custom TOC styles.
I don't understand this. Do I have to glom all of my ID documents together into one file? Or (shudder) hand-roll a Nav TOC in TextWrangler?
Any help would be much appreciated!
The fine print: I'm running InDesign CC 2015 / build 184.108.40.206 on an iMac Retina 5K running Mac OS X 10.11.1

Further tinkering has cleared up some of the problem. I note my preliminary findings here to alleviate pain for future users. Any comments by the cognoscenti would be much appreciated.
