InDesign • How to Convert a Print Book into an eBook

In this video, I explain my start-to-finish process for converting an InDesign Print Book file into an Ebook file. We utilize Kindle Previewer and Pagina Epub Checker during the process. Here are some questions we answer here:
How can I preview my epub on my computer? How do I keep my chapters separated in my ebook? Why isn’t this style working in my ebook? Why are my pictures so small in my ebook? Why can’t I see the Table of Contents in my Ebook? Why isn’t the metadata date working in my ebook?
