Updated Export Plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS3

If you’re using InDesign CS3 to create ePub documents then you’ll want to make sure you’re using the 1.0.1 update. The update includes an option to embed the fonts in the document and to use a TOC Style from the InDesign document, but more importantly, the update implements the OPS 2.0 v. 0.984 Draft specification (dated 16 Apr. 2007). The original export plug-in implemented a previous version of the draft, so you’ll want to get the update.

You can find the update in the downloads section of www.adobe.com, and it’s available for both Macintosh and Windows.

If you’re already using the update, you’ll see a faint ‘1.0.1’ in the lower right hand corner of the export dialog. You’ll also see the option to embed fonts and a third panel in the dialog. If that ‘1.0.1’ is missing, then you’ve not installed the update.

    I managed to locate where this download goes, which is in ID’s Scripts folder, but it’d help if there were a readme file with the download that told us where. ID users are designers and not necessarily technical gurus.–Mike Perry, Inkling Books, Seattle

    Good point Mike. While the instructions are on the download page, it’d be more convenient if they were in a readme. This is, however, a temporary solution. Eventually there will be an installer.
