Howdy! Somebody over at the Adobe forums suggested I check out the forums here for my EPUB questions, but I noticed that the EPUB forum was closed, so I hope it’s OK if I sneak in a question on this general forum.
My ebook skills are cobbled together from YouTube tutorials and trial and error, so even after a couple of years making EPUB and MOBI files, I’m still bumping into what are probably elementary issues. The latest cropped up in some “love notes” from Amazon about my footnotes not back-linking to the text. Is that some magic setting I need to adjust in InDesign, either in the footnote formatting dialog or the EPUB export dialog? Or is it something I need to do outside of InDesign? If the latter, anybody got any leads for me?
And if I’m being unacceptably off-topic, just shoo me away, and I’ll go weep quietly in a corner… ;-)
I’m not sure how many footnotes you have, but probably one of the easiest ways is to go through and replace your footnotes with InDesign’s Footnotes (right click > Insert footnote). That will create the cross-reference linking that is needed in Epub’s and Mobi’s for linked footnotes.
