You need to upgrade to InDesign CC2015 to get this feature.
Use JPGs for your images.
Have you licenced your font for ePub?
You must have InDesign CC2014 or CC2015 to export fixed layout epub.
Thank you Derek and Bob for your answers, I am very grateful. I am also quite humiliated.
I didn't realize that Indisign CS6 wasn't the most recent version.
As to your questions, I can easily make the .PDF's into .JPG, but I thought the image quality would suffer.
And yes I have all intentions of licensing the font for my ePub as it will be for sale, but I was waiting to see how it looked or if it even worked on exporting, to contact the creator. (I had seen in some tutorials that only some specific fonts will work with fixed layout epubs.)
Licensing a font for an ePub can be expensive, so consider using the Typekit fonts that come free with InDesign CC2014/2015. You have to use JPGs (or GIFs or PNGs) for ePubs because these are the formats that will be rendered.
By the way, how do you propose selling your ePub?
Thank you for the heads up on font licensing, Derek!
My friends and I successfully crowdfunded a children's book series called "Sprouts: Stories to Grow With." The first book in the series is called "Corrine Wants to Grow Up," and we printed 1,000 physical copies. See www.sprouts-stories.com if you're interested.
Now we are working on our online distribution. I thought that an ePub was a good start, then I would work on the kindle version to get into the Amazon market. The intention is to get it into all of the big online stores: Amazon, iBooks, etc. We considered just signing up with Smashwords or BookBaby because they place you in all these markets for either a fee or a cut of the sales, but ultimately it looks like it's more profitable if you just do the work yourself and put your work on all these sites.
Marketing and publicity, such as the use of Social Media is a vital part of the publishing process, and beyond the scope of this forum. Maybe sign up to blogs such as Sabrina Ricci's Digital Pubbing – Exploring the ins and outs of the publishing industry
For sure, thank you so much. I realize we are WAY off topic and I will go check this out. Thank you for all your kind help and support!
