Greetings.

I am left with one error message when exporting my file to epub, which says, "

Custom Layout settings in Object Export Options have not been honored for group children, button states and inline objects." I suspect that this error is responsible for some of my quoted text conversions being lost. Fortunately, it's only here and there, but I'd love to correct it. See screenshots for an example of scripture reference:

I've seen this on EPUB and Kindle exports — applying a one-characteristic character override (usually bold, italic or a size change) will lose other characteristics. The only solution I have found to be consistent is to use CSS style control for the export and force style overrides to 'inherit' other characteristics. For example, a style KJVitalic, meant to apply italic to these quotes, might be defined as:

 

  • span.KJVitalic {
    font-style: italic;
    font-weight: inherit;
    font-size: inherit;
    font-family: i

By the way, I'm exporting to a reflowable Epub.

Can you share a screenshot of the options you select when exporting to epub?

Also, can you confirm the exact version of the software and operating system you are using?

Sure thing. I'm running Indesign 2021 on Windows 10 PC. Here are the screenshots:

I don't see any unusual differences between the examples. What am I missing? 🙂

 

Is it the loss of italics on the attributions?

If you compare the font on the scripture reference Nehemiah 1:5-11 , ESV, emphasis added, you'll notice that the font is different on the exported version. It didn't retain the chosen font in the export.

To force this consistency, all character styles/span overrides need to be similarly "filled out" with no assumptions allowed.

I have not found a way to force these fixes from within ID/EPUB export alone.
