hi all - 

InDesign export to EPUB3 (Fixed-layout)
on export - 'Cover' > 'Choose image'

all works as expected on iBooks / Calibre / Kindle Previewer but on Adobe Digital Editions the cover shown in 'Library' is a section of the first '.xhtml' file in the book's reading sequence.

 

How can I get the cover image showing correctly on ADE?

I can get it to work by following - on export - 'Cover' - 'Rasterize first page', but only want the covers to show in 'Library' view!

any help would be appreciated - thanks

Adobe Digital Editions is garbage. Adobe should be embarrassed to even put their name on it.

Try Thorium Reader for non-Apple operating systems.

thanks Bob -

I agree with you . . . but client has specified that they want ebooks to work on ADE - everything "works" except the cover on Library view -

'page-break' on reflowable epubs is a particular ADE bugbear of mine!

Well then, it's up to you tell them that ADE sucks. Otherwise, all I can offer is my sympathies.

But again, please show them Thorium...it's far superior to ADE but there's nothing out there as dependable as the Books app on iOS, iPad OS or Mac OS.
