    Quotes/Apostrophes cause Space Deletion...?

    b lr3d Level 1

      okay, so... inDesign CC.  i'm using full page images and placing text on top, and exporting to epub with fixed layout.

       

      this is working well for me (in epub, don't even ask about mobi), but... just today, i finished importing all the text for my book and exported and did a preview with the Adobe Digital Editions preview thing...  and it's removing spaces between words sometimes.  usually after a word with an apostrophe, but sometimes the first two words in a quote.

       

      examples:

       

      "You're something..." => "You'resomething..."

      "Are those..." => "Arethose..."

      "You want..." => "Youwant..."

      "Allyou..." =>  "Allyou..."

       

      and a stray one not in quotes or near an apostrophe...

      ... vow not ... =>  ... vownot ...

       

       

      any ideas?
