I've been trying to export a fixed-layout ePub file from a 176-page ID print file — a music textbook, if that matters, and not my design. I expected it to take a while, but instead, immediately after export starts, ID crashes.
I'm running InDesign CC 2017 (just upgraded — 2017.0 release). I can export to PDF with no problem. When I export to reflowable ePub (using the standard ePub 2.0.1 settings), I get the following errors:
Inline objects like text frames, groups etc. have been rasterized.
Drop caps, Run-in style, Line style, and GREP style applied as style overrides are ignored. These are only supported in paragraph styles: 1 found.
The gradient fill and stroke applied on object are not supported.
Non rectangular objects will not appear correctly when exported using CSS.
Appearance mismatch may occur when overlapping grouped objects are exported as JPG. Try exporting them as PNG.

I don't see anything in there that should kill InDesign when it exports to FXL ePub3. I'm guessing the fonts (which are in the ID Fonts folder) are a problem because of licensing. The rasterized text, while annoying, shouldn't be a problem either. The other errors look non-lethal.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Oh — and I was able to export a FXL ePub 3 file from another ID file, so it isn't the whole export feature that's the problem.
