Creating a Reflowable eBook

This work follows on from previous workflows in creating a Shakespeare play for print. We should already have an Indesign ‘book’ with at least 2 sections. We will export from InDesign for ePub (reflowable) and then 'break open' the ePub file and make some changes to some of the included files.
