Both Apple and Kindle Previewer 3 - they both shows words together.

Is it doing this once (in a title, for example) or in every instance of the word pair?

 

Have you made sure it's a regular space (or other defined space) between the worlds? Try replacing it to be sure.

Was with InDesign tech support for well over an hour. They had control of my screen and we worked it and didn't fix it, frustrating. I worked on it some more by myself, ended up having to use other words - weird. And looking closer I now see it thoughout the Ebook doc - and not in the inDesign doc. Mercury Retro> WTF???? I'll keep trying, hacking around.

Fixed EPUB is not a reliable format in and of itself, and EPUB readers vary in presenting it even more than reflowable. There is no specific reason this should be happening; it's usually a collision of the format, the fonts and the reader.

 

If your goal is a Kindle edition to go with the print book, consider reflowable EPUB instead.

It's a graphic novel, it has to be fixed. Still not working in both Apple and Kindle reader. It just does it randomly, like with find cover = findcover, flying jets = flyingjets, fanel shirt = flanelshirt. I can fix it by using completely different words.

Okay. It's the font. Substitute another one for it that has better kerning info, and you'll likely solve the problem.

JAMES - you did it! WTF - it was the font, I was using Courier New which I picked as a standard for Graphic Novel and Comic books. Thanks - strange that InDesign tech support wasn't able to catch it, suggest this fix. Now I have another day to rework everything. Check it out - by next week my first graphic novel in a trilogy will be avilable on Amazon. GRAFFITI WARS - When Art Saved the World. Thanks again everyone!

Cool. Yeah, fixed EPUB is either fussy or crummy at font handling, your choice. If a font doesn't have just the right kerning info, it will do weird things. Fortunately there are many similar fonts.

Thanks for the help everyone. Even InDesign tech support didn't know it was the FONT I was using. COURIOR NEW. Thanks James for suggesting it was the fonts. Whew.... back to the drawing board to change it all.
