HOW CAN I EXPORT EPUB WITH AFFINITY PUBLISHER


Recommended Posts

Lend your voice to the epub file format request page here: 

In the meantime, from Affinity, export to PDF and use Calibre to export to EPUB

Why would you use Affinity Publisher if you can use text editors that are more suited to the type of text required for export to ePub or that export directly to ePub, Mobi, Azw etc.

Because I am creating documents mostly for print, knew InDesign really well and transferred seamlessly to Affinity Publisher et al., and now need to make accessible documents, and just learned that EPUB is the easiest format for screen readers.  (My PDF documents are increasingly often also being posted to Web sites.)

 

Also, Google docs eliminates all the formatting when someone opens a PDF, destroying the aesthetics on which I worked so hard—though perhaps rather than make the actual file accessible, the staff person who is doing the accessible version should go ahead and do that through Google or Libre/Open Office.

One would think in such a modern era, the styling of a document could be easily maintained, especially from such as Google. I have seen a lot of ePubs that are literally illegible due to poor formatting or formatting ruined due to the platform it resides on stripping out formatting to simplify the content and personally, I do appreciate well formatted ePubs, it makes for a more pleasant reader experience.
