Vielen Dank für die beiden Webinars zur E-Book-Produktion. Leider stehe ich an, wenn ich meine eigenen CSS verwenden möchte. Beim Export aus InDesign kann ich auswählen, ob es eine CSS generieren soll und ob die Schriften eingebettet werden sollen ODER ob ich eine vorhandene CSS-Datei verwenden möchte (was ich unbedingt möchte!). Ich habe die meisten Bücher aber in QuarkXPress erstellt. In den Print-Dateien habe ich die Styles nun bereits entsprechend meiner CSS umbenannt, damit das schön kompatibel wird und ich das EPub in Sigil problemlos nachbearbeiten kann ... das klappt aber nur, wenn der Export mit dieser CSS gemacht werden kann. Doch wie? – Gibt es da Hilfe?

Though you can't refer to an existing CSS during ePub export, you can work around it. You can export the ePub and then open it in an editor of your choice. In the CSS generated by QuarkXPress, you may change the style attributes with the attributes from your custom CSS file. So the class names remain the same but the style changes.

If you can share a small sample, I can show you how to achieve this.
