I am exporting an InDesign file to an ePub. The document has endnotes and I want readers to be able to tap an endnote number and be taken to the endnote and tap the endnote and be taken back to the reading place.
I cannot see a way to do this in InDesign. Any help would be most welcome, thanks in advance.
Ah. Apple Books is... off the main track on a lot of subtle EPUB interpretation points. It may be worth taking steps to optimize a book for sale under iTunes, but you will often want/need two different final exports in that case — one for Apple, and one that presents optimally in Thorium or another very standard reader.
That will leave the book with quirks in many other variant readers, but that's a fault of the slack adherence to standards in the EPUB world. Aim for the core, standards-based readers and let everyone else do their own tech support. 🙂
Short form, though, is that InDesign does cross-link or round-trip both footnotes and endnotes in EPUB export. If it doesn't work, it's a reader issue or a corrupted document.
