To Make an eBook (Part II):
Must have separate InDesign files for each part of the book: cover, front matter, each chapter, back matter, etc. Open all these in an InDesign Book file.
Include Section title, chapter numbers
Include Book documents
First prepare the normal ToC at the beginning. Use a separate InDesign file for this and place it in the correct order in the Book file.
You have to manually create the ToC--no generating it or it will be taken out when you make the ePUB file.
Interactive-->Hyperlink (old way)
Create link destination in the Chapter 1 (or whatever) InDesign file
highlight-->Hyperlinks panel New Hyperlink Destination
Highlight bottom of Hyperlink panel Link to: Text Anchor
Choose Ch. 1
Creating the ToC (easier way)
Consistently apply Paragraph Styles
Create New Reference Link to paragraph
Add metadata--makes them searchable
If you have the whole eBook in one document, then choose File-->Export for Digital Editions
If it's a Book file (what you should do anyway), then export from the Book panel-->Export for Digital Editions
Add Publisher Entry (The Unbound Bookmaker)
If you have letters as numbers in a numbered series, then Convert to Text
Many eReaders don't read embedded fonts, so use open type or truetype fonts if you can.
Suppress Automatic Entries for Docs (Check)
TA DA!! You've got yourself an eBook, a market value of $69–$200!
