    Uploading an ePub - Issues I can't Reproduce In Any Other ePub Viewer

      OK I created an ePub file for a client and he and I are having issues uploading it to Nookpress. The file passes the  ePub validation at http://validator.idpf.org/ 

       

      We are viewing the file in the NookPress Previewer. The issues we have: 

       

      Incorrect Table of Contents (NCX ) 

       

      There is a correctly coded NCX file in the ePub - but instead the previiewer appears to be parsing the file and picking up some other reference points

      Footnote Navigation 

       

      The book has a several hundred endnotes throughout it. The endnotes are substantial.  They are linked and work correctly on ADE, Calibre etc. However on the Nook clicking the footnote reference e.g. [34] should take you tootnote 34 - however it only jumps to the start of the endnote section. Indeed the same thing happens in reverse: returning from the footnote should return to the point in the text, instead it returns to the start of the chapter.

      Any help would be appreciated - I can find no mention of what Nookpress actually does to ePubs that are uploaded, so it makes it extermely difficult to do any further trouble shooting

       

      Regards

          Manuscript Editor takes perfectly good EPUB files and makes them buggy. You can't get an ebook into the Nook Press system without dealing with Manuscript Editor. So if you still have a Pubit account, do everything from there, don't bother with the Nook Press interface.

           

          Until/unless the software for Nook Press gets fixed, trying to fix and troubleshoot your files in NP is a waste of time.

            For what it may or may not be worth, here is my suggestion. Go ahead and publish the ebook (if you can) with Pubit or NOOK Press, and read it with a NOOK, not the Previewer. If not satisfied, make corrections, republish and read it again with the NOOK. Ignore the Previewer.

             

            In view of the Forum published difficulties encountered in attempting publication for the NOOK, and the decline in  ebooks Reported purchased, both since NOOK Press, I question the wisdom of haqving anything new to do with NOOK Press at this time.

             

            I have been and am a BandN supporter, but IF BandN wants to stay in the ebook business, then it is essential that BandN fix the new problems in publication and marketing introduced by NOOK Press. If this is not done, the ebook business of BandN must inevitably decline.

              In Nookpress, prior to publishing a project/title, you are given the option of publishing 'the version you worked on in the editor' or 'the original epub file' . Try uploading/publishing the original epub file. Once it hits the shelves you can verify it working as desired on an actual device. Hope this helps

                Glad to see I am not the only one having issues with the "new" previewer. I say new because I have published more than 100 eBooks for NOOK and never had any problems until they came up with this bigger/better version. Now I can not get any file to upload and preview correctly; Word, ePub, html. You are lucky. The most I have ever gotten out of it are 2 images of the cover of my eBook. I wish they had left well enough alone.
