Help with "link to pages" exporting to reflowable EPUB from InDesign

Hello, I have searched this topic with no success.

At one point several years ago, I was able to export linked pages to a reflowable epub. I think InDesign automatically inserted a text anchor at the top of the page so the link would know where to go when exported. I'm no longer able to do this. The result is a blank hyperlink. I'm trying to determine if this is a bug on my end, or inDesign no longer converts linked pages to hyperlinks when exporting to a reflowable epub. Any scripts out there that might accomplish this for me? I'm converting a 120-pg document for a client and all of their links are to pages. 

 

Thanks much!!

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your difficulties. Could you please share the exact workflow you are for following to link the pages? Is the issue related to a specific document?

 

Regards,

Hi! No, it is not related to a specific document. All of my documents with page links export empty href tags. ( <a href="">See page 84.</a> ) 

Does inDesign support page links to reflowable epubs? The inDesign user guide specifically states that it supports hyperlinks on pages for fixed-page epubs, but gives no mention of support for reflowable epubs.

I am exporting to reflowable epub v 2.01. 

Thanks for your help!
