Is there any way to space/track all caps when exporting to reflowable ePub from ID? I seem to lose this formatting when exporting.
are you talking about «Initials» in InDesign? If formated correctly, they should get into your ePub. Then you can optimize them with CSS Element :first-letter.
Here is a (german) tutorial: https://einmanncombo.de/epub-mit-initial/
Hey! Thanks so much for your reply 🙂
I have titles in my ePub that I've set in ALL CAPS (like so) and I want to be able to space the characters a little as they're too close. Is there a way of doing this?
I only know how to use InDesign, and don't know how to use any CSS or HTML 😕
You can add letter spacing to the exported file.
Firstly, make sure you’re using Paragraph Styles in InDesign
Tracking is lost in the export, but you can use a utility to crack open the epub (I use eCanCrusher but many others are available) and open the generated css file (OEBPS>CSS>idGeneratedStyles.css) in a text editor (I use Dreamweaver which is like cracking a walnut with a sledgehammer, Brackets is a popular alternative).
Add the letter-spacing property to the style, something like…
(Mileage will vary, so you’ll need to experiment with the exact amount to get the spacing you like).
Save the file, zip the package (eCanCrusher again) and view in e-reader of choice.
Amazing! Thank you so much for your help. This is a revelation.
