    Exporting grouped figures and captions from InDesign to EPUB

    karenh21849546

      My current page layout has captions (in separate text boxes) sometimes appearing to the left of a figure, sometimes under the figure, and sometimes to the right of the figure.

      From my research, I see that InDesign exports from left to right, top to bottom, but my EPUB isn't always coming out that way.

      I know about ordering articles, but if I anchor the group in the text, then I can't alter the order of the caption & image within that group any longer from the articles panel.

      And I don't know how to center the caption under the image.

      Do I need to rasterize the whole group and no longer have live text within the caption box?

       

      I have a feeling my print book cannot look the way I want it to unless I make a SEPARATE file for the ebook, rather than trying to do them both from one file. Not what we desire, but it may be the best answer. (Or do I go with fixed layout?)

      Or do I need to learn CSS to alter these things after the fact??

      I realize I have a lot of questions, but I am just getting started learning about EPUB from InDesign.

      Thank you to anyone who can help!
