Is it a Reflowable ePub or a FXL ePub?

Have you validated it?

Producing Reflowable ePubs is not intuative – for example, there's no page size, no folios, all text to have paragraph and  character styles applied, all images need to be anchored, master page content not recognised and so on. A knowledge of HTML and CSS can also be helpful to fine-tune the ePub.

Have you undertaken any training in producing documents in the format? If not LinkedInLearning.com have some useful online video training tutorials (and you can get 30-days free access).
