Moving to InDesign EPUB forum
Thanks a lot everyone!
So currently I am still having problems getting the images to fit correctly on the spreads.
Here is the world map I'm trying to anchor and sit on its own pages between the Acknowledgements and the Preface:
And here is the interlude section I'm trying to style:
Currently those large beautiful black and whites are appearing on the right of the text on their own page. Which is fine to me as long as they sit on their own page in the epub. My main issue is the world map wanting to exist shrunken on the same page as Acknowledgments.
So far I've been anchoring the images to white text behind them, but that seems to be a problem ><
I don't know what others think, but I feel that you should stick to single pages with a reflowlable text ePub – devices aren't designed for facing pages.
How would I convert it from facing pages?
Sorry to ask.
I was able to load it up on two separate PC epub readers and here is the result:
On Simple EPUB Reader.
The below is on Ice Cream Reader:
For some reason the title, the copyright, the dedication and map are all on the same page scrunched together.
Create an add new headings named "Copyright" and "Dedication", add these above those items and give them a new Paragraph Style. Tick, under Export Tagging, Split Document.
Subsequently you should check your ePub using (for example) the IDPF validator to see if your ePub passes (and deal with any issues indicated if it doesn't:
For a Masters I would expect a higher level of quality, for example is the book optimised for reading on devices that allow for night reading mode? (Easily done in the CSS.)
I was hoping to avoid having headers there, but if that's the best solution I can move forward with that. The epub does validate.
What do you mean a higher level of quality?
The nightmode programming was not covered in our classes I can add it in the CSS, but I'll have to look up the code for it.
You can make those headings a smaller size.
A better ePub.
Delete the #0000 from the color of the fonts (In the CSS).
