Hey folks, I'm in the middle of exporting individual Indesign chapter docs to epub and have come across a doc that's "hanging" after I click "OK" to export — I'm getting the spinning wheel, which as of 5 minutes and counting, is still spinning. This happened before and I force quit ID. Can anyone explain what might be happening with this doc and what to do to fix it? It's part of a book and I've been able to export the prior chapters. Do I have to force quit again and save as an .idml doc or something? Is it corrupted?

You may have a corruption, try dividing the document in half to see if one half is ok and the other half isn't, and continue halfing until you, hopefully isolate the issue. 

What does it state when you validate it?

Hi again, Derek! Thanks for coming to my rescue.



There was no error message. Basically, the application would hang for the longest time until I couldn't stand it anymore and had to force quit. 



Upon restarting ID, i reopened the doc and saved as an .idml. When I opened the .idml doc, it listed an erroneous font: "Adobe Garamond Pro Nothing" (see screenshot).










I'm totally baffled. I don't have that font. How did it materialize in the document? In any case, I replaced it with Adobe Garamond Regular and was able to carry on (so far). Upon opening subsequent docs, I sometimes find Adobe Garamond Pro Regular listed twice in the "Find Font" dialogue box. When I do, I export to .idml, then reopen, fix the font issue, resave over the .indd doc, and carry on again. So far so good, but I'm still baffled at the "Adobe Garamond Nothing" font. Do you have any insight to that?



Thanks,

CArl

Make sure you use Open Type Fonts.
What about the validation?

Hi Derek, the Adobe Garamond Pro fonts are opentype so I'm not sure how the issue materialized. So far the validation posts no errors (fingers crossed).
