Learn how to import an EPUB file that has been exported using Adobe InDesign and has animations or interactivity.
Adobe InDesign exports its chapters using case-sensitive HTML attributes. For example, you may see an HTML tag that has an attribute looking like
The attribute label (data-idGenAnimationEndState) as you can see is not lowercase but contains a mix of upper and lower case characters. This is a violation of HTML, as all tags and attributes in HTML are case-insensitive, and hence will be dealt with as lowercase characters. When the EPUB is opened or imported into Kotobee Author, the editor automatically converts the tags and attributes into lowercase.
- Download the replacement file from https://www.kotobee.com/files/fixes/idGeneratedScript.zip.
- Extract the zip file.
- Open the File Manager in Kotobee Author.
- Go to EPUB/xhtml/epub[few random digits]/OEBPS/script. For example, the third folder may be titled epub2739.
- Replace the existing idGeneratedScript.js file in Adobe InDesign's JS folder with the new one.
You will only need to do this once for each project file.
