InDesign to EPUB
Before reading this, you might want to read:
What if you inherit files that you didn’t originate and need to make the ebook from those files. There are a couple of cool tricks to use to quickly clean-up the style sheets so that it is ready for the EPUB export.
Sometimes it turns up a whole book full of unused styles. Deleting these cleans up the file so that you can see through to what is important to fix, and what can be left as is.
In this book when the style override highlighter is toggled on, almost all of the text highlights in that turquoise colour. A quick way to clean up the application of styles is to use the Find/Change menu but leave the Find what: and Change to: lines blank, choosing instead to search for paragraphs styled with, let’s say, “indent” and replace it with the same style. This clears the overrides.
This is another InDesign hack and you should be cautious about using it as it will erase formatting that you may need or haven’t cleaned up yet. It is definitely a cool trick but be careful with it.
