Given the restriction of the book being viewable on the older eInk Kindles—no, you will not be able to replicate this layout perfectly. Particularly with images spanning page spreads, but also with precisely formatted blocks of floating text, your only real option for replication is a fixed layout ebook.
Fixed layout books, as you might expect from ...
I have never used Adobe Indesign, but I'm guessing that when they spit out html they use the italic and bold html tags. My guess is that in Adobe Indesign you are not seeing a separate font at all but a compound statement about font-style and font-family.
You can easily test this by outputting it epub/html and viewing the source.
There is no need to give every paragraph a class, the definition at 1. will apply to every paragraph, with or without a tag, and only on paragraphs that are directly below a footnote the settings will be overruled by those of the CSS of 2.
You might not even need to have the CSS at 1., but for the defaults of the ePub reader.
It can be accomplished with the page-break-after (link) or page-break-before (link) CSS properties. Pretty obviously, these create a page break after or before the element that they are applied on.
Here are a couple of examples of their use:
<p class="newpage">This ...
First, you are way behind the current standard.
Most (if not all) ebook distributors are requiring high resolution graphics for cover images. (a Minimum of 1500 pix or 2000 pix for width). This has been true for at least the last 2 years.
It's true that some of the smaller devices will display only 600x800, but all distributors recognized early on that ...
As far as I can remember InDesign only supports 3 image formats when exporting to epub: jpg, png, and gif. So even if you place the svg files in InDesign they will be converted on export. If you edit the epub after exporting it you could replace the image files with the vectors. Of course, that doesn't do anything to make various e-reader apps recognize .svg
I don't know a lot about SVG, but I have played around very superficially with svg in ebooks (about a year or two ago). What I found was that although my simple svg worked in one or two epub readers, support on Kindle was very iffy.
If you look at the Amazon Kindle Publishing Guidelines, you will see about half a page on SVG support. It seemed very ...
I cleaned up the code by deleting the excess id tags (these were added by inDesign when exporting to epub and were unnecessary), and that fixed it. Still no idea why this specific paragraph had issues and not others, which also contained excess id tags. Turns out, inDesign had added some nice little code to the CSS for the class "_idGenParaOverride-1" to ...
There are several ways to create ebooks. 1. MS Word --> epub. 2. HTML --> epub. 3. Adobe Indesign --> Epub. 4. (Various formats) with Calibre --> epub.
There are other tools like those described here: https://www.epubor.com/epub-builder-freeware.html
Remember that all epub files must be validly formatted. In other words, if you run it through this ...
Follow these steps:
Create an .indd document
Set the page margins and document properties to mirror what you have on Microsoft word, or — better still — set these properties based on how you want your book to be.
Select File -> Place or Ctrl+D
From the dialog box, select the Microsoft Word file
Go through the Microsoft Word Import Options making sure you ...
Old question, but I came in search of an answer and have some things to share on this topic!
Adobe InDesign uses character or paragraph styles to format italics and bold, using a relevant font family, this is correct. There used to be a way to visually "force" a style, but I'm using Creative Cloud and have the most recent InDesign, which doesn't show these ...
I'm testing this with Calibre editor, I don't know if InDesign works the same, but html tags are the same regardless of the software.
I can render a bold italic text in two ways, with <b> and <i> tags, or with <strong> and <em> tags.
<b><i>This is a bold and italic text</i></b>
This is a ...
The ePub file does not contain any information about the InDesign pagination -- that information is all left behind when the ePub file is generated. So your only possible way to do that is inside InDesign.
Inside InDesign it will be either point-click-clic-click ...a few thousand times or you script it with an additional tool like AutoHotkey or AutoIt that ...
ePub is just a whole bunch of HTML, some metadata, and CSS. So, you have the same rules as with any HTML page.
You can't force any browser to display a page the way you want it. Your "fixed layout" is at best a suggestion.
If you specify a typeface, and that typeface is not available on the client device, it will be ignored. You can ensure that the font is ...
