Hi,

Is there functionality in inDesign to create a continuous scrolling document left to right instead of single or double pages that scroll up & down on an EPUB document?

 

Best,
Toby

No. That's not how epub and epub readers work. It would have to be implemented on the readers' side.

 

If you'd be exporting this to an app, a number of (commerical) plugins allow you to do this. I believe In5 supports this and scrolling content frames, or something like Mag+.

Thanks for your response, appreciate it!

 

Do you know if text can be created with an E-pub so it looks like its typing itself out?

Best,

Toby

Auto-typing is not a function of ePubs. Sorry! Again, check with Justin Putney at In5.
