Preparing InDesign Files for eBook Production

Technical Tutorial Published 12/15/16 Last updated on 7/19/18

Overview

The step in this lesson are some of the most important ones in preparing to convert a book designed to be printed for delivery as an ebook. People sometimes rush past them and pay the price later, with a low-quality ebook that can even alienate readers and resellers, which makes you (as a publisher) and your authors look bad (ethos and "intellectual capital" are really important in publishing!).
