    fixed layout epub text/word spacing issues

    paul.montei@kornferry.com

      I have a book i have exported to fixed layout that turned out almost perfect.

       

      I have some instances where it appears that the use of character styles, in this case, italics has made some extreme spacing both tight and far apart. I also have text that has gone outside of the text frame.

       

      I have included 4 screen shots of what is happening in the book.

      This is from iBooks. RH page, text outside of the text box (i'm using shading in my paragraph style), running header is bunched together with chapter number, head at top of gray box is too tight at the occurrence of italics (character style).

      I thought i could edit from dreamweaver, but this is what i see when i open the page, except for bold missing, no problems at all.

      So what do i do now? is the problem my layout? or is fixed layout too new?

       

      thanks for any help or direction.
