From InDesign to iBooks Author

Episode 3 of an introduction to iBooks Author

There is no direct way to get your content out of InDesign and into iBooks Author.

[edit] Please note that as of iBooks Author 2.2 you can insert chapters from an IDML file that has been exported from InDesign

What we have to do is to make use of a number of scripts added to InDesign to break down a single document into separated files and then extract the text. Lucky for us, iBooks Author can build a chapter from a Microsoft Word document and will even respect the styles built in Indesign!
