eBook production staff at companies of all sizes are using Adobe InDesign CS5 to create EPUB files for long-form publications that require reflowable text. While EPUB files can be read on a variety of e-reading devices (including e-ink readers, PC/Mac, and smartphones), there’s clear excitement around tablet devices like the iPad. For those specifically interested in reading EPUB files on the iPad or distributing EPUB documents to the iBookstore, check out our new white paper “eBooks: From Adobe InDesign to the Apple iBookstore.” The guide overviews helpful tips for setting up an InDesign document in preparation for export to the EPUB format and details how to transfer the resulting EPUB file for reading on the iPad. For publishers wishing to monetize their content, the white paper also reviews best practices in preparing EPUB content for sale in the iBookstore.

Additionally, join us for our Ask a CS Pro session on Friday, Oct. 29th, at 12pm PDT with community expert Anne-Marie Concepcion. In this session you’ll have a chance to dive into the contents of the whitepaper, including how to export your InDesign document to EPUB, add the EPUB file to the iBooks app on your iPad for previewing and testing, and sell your EPUB publication on the iBookstore.
