I have Split Document (EPUB only) selected and it's not holding when split document based on paragraph style export tags is selected.
Anythoughts on why?
Not sure what you mean. Is this a Reflowable ePub or a FXL ePub?
Corect this is a reflowable epub
What do you mean "split document"?
Part Review, Part 2 and the Articles should all be at the top of new pages
You can set in your Paragraph Style for Part Review heading to start on a new page.
Where is this drop down menu?
As I mentioned, in the Paragraph Styles.
I looked there and do not see it.
Producing Reflowable ePubs is not intuative. I suggest you take one of the excellent online tutorials byAnne-Marie Concepción on Linkedin Learning – you can get 30-days free access.
Thank you for pointing out where that drop down is located. I have watched many of her video and have created a dozen reflowable EPUBs. This is the first time this have been a problem. I'll give this a and see if it works.
Well it was a good thought but there was no change.
I do have a suport request into Adobe.
As you discovered, using either InDesign or CSS page breaks doesn't work in EPUB.
It sounds as if you are not using Split Document correctly. The options are:
The first option is preferable since it allows you to use more than one style for splits.
The important part is that you have to do *both*—check Split Doc in export, and either define the split styles or tell ID to use one style for splitting.
If you still aren't seeing new page starts, examine the EPUB — open it with any ZIP archive reader — and see if there are two or more XHTML content files. If there's only one, it's not splitting. There should be one XHTML file per split (obviously).
Thanks everyone. I think the probem was this was a older InDesign file. I saved the as idml, then re saved them as current InDesign files. After that I used my original settings and the document exported the way I would have expected it to.
Yes, I think the EPUB features have changed more, by version and over time, than most others. A good point to watch for (older docs) although I'm mystified as to how the failure occurs. 🙂
