Preparing your InDesign files for ePub export

A few years ago, I did a presentation on “Preparing your InDesign files for ePub export”.

At the time, CS4 was the most recent incarnation of InDesign. As we all know by now, the ePub export functionality in that version was pretty flawed, but significantly better than it was in CS3.

There was not very much improvement with the release of InDesign CS5, but version CS5.5 brought the whole thing to a new level.

The ePub-specific enhancements with the release of CS5.5 include:

  • The new Articles Panel
  • Style Export Tagging
  • Much improved ePub Export Dialog
  • etc.

With that said, I have gone ahead and updated my presentation to include these very helpful additions to Adobe InDesign CS5.5.

I hope you find this information helpful.
