In part 1 of this series, you learned how to create a file in InDesign that successfully exports to a format eBook readers can display. But after exporting an EPUB file from InDesign, it’s sometimes necessary to modify it. For instance, you might want to insert a forced page break, add metadata to the file, or change table formatting.
