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!
What version of InDesign? What EPUB reader? What are your export settings and finally, yes, if you’re working with EPUBs knowledge of HTML and CSS is something that does come in handy.
I am using CS6 and I was exporting to Adobe Digital Editions and something called Sigil.
My export settings under the Image tab are: (1) preserve appearance from layout checked, (2) resolution 150, (3) fixed image size, (4) image alignment centered, no space before or after, with settings applied to anchored objects, (5) image conversion automatic, and (6) image quality high, format progressive, (7) unchecked ignore object export options.
Screenshot is tricky since it is on a separate computer right now.
I suppose Lynda.com might be a good source for me to learn more about CSS?
