Hi InDesign experts.
I'm exporting my InDesign file to a reflowable EPUB.
The fonts are locked - i.e. if I specify a particular font in the reader, that is ignored.
I've tried all the switches I can think of:
- Export with and without embedded fonts
- Styles mapped and not mapped to HTML p, h1, h2, etc.
The CSS generated by these appears with and without font-face declarations. However, the <p> styles always include "Garamond, serif" and the <h1> styles "Open Sans, sans-serif".
What version of InDesign? What EPUB reader? Are the fonts opentype and embeddable? What are the export settings from InDesign?
Indesign: Latest PC version
Readers: ADE, Calibre, Apple.
Export settings: Which ones do you want?
Best Regards, Chris.
...and OpenType fonts from typekit (Garmond Pro. Open Sans)
Screen shots of all them would help...and please, whenever you're asked for version give a number, not "latest version." I wish I had a dollar for everyone that thought they were on the latest version.
InDesign 16.1 x64
As I said in my origanal post....

Thanks for the tip Derek. I signed up and it looks like a useful thing to have.
However, it was no help with my issue.
If you've taken out a subscription to Flightdeck, it might be worth you emailing Joshua Tallent to see if he might offer you some suggestions with your ePub issue.
Is this happening with all files or just this one?
It's the second book I've had a problem with, Bob
No, and yes.
It's important to use Paragraph (and Character) Styles and no Master Pages.
could it be that your fonts are not embeddable even if you check the option to embed fonts?
That the makers of the fonts will not allow that this font is embedded?
Did you crack open an exported EPUB to see if a font file is inside the EPUB?
Did you try with a different font?
