I am trying to create an epub document that is 95% images (children's book). The images are placed inline and not dropped in like images would normally be. When I export the document and open it in iBooks I only get 1/2 of the pages exported. Not sure what is going on. get a formatting error when I export the epub, but I can figure out what is causing the error. Any ideas?

    Try to export the first half of the document then the second one to isolate the wrongdoer.

    How exactly did you fix this problem?  I am having the exact same issue (also trying to put one of my daughter's books into the iPad via Pages), and like you, I don't get all of the pages.  I have Pages '09 4.1, and working on a MacBook Pro (2010 vintage).  I have spent days trying to get this project sorted.   I started with iBook, but the Apple ibook ePub like standard does not support the page turning function.  I downloaded Pages last night and have this problem now.  BTW, I tried to create a second book with a whole new set of images, and got the same problem (although on a different page number).


    Any help would be appreciated, as my daughter is growing up fast.

    Read the information on ePub in Pages.

    You can only have 11 Mb of images in one chapter.

    So before you add the images to Pages make sure they are not larger in MB than they need to be.

    This is not the issue (I believe).  The .pages file is only 5.6Mb in total.  The ePub file that it creates is only 1.8Mb. 


    On a side note do you know if this 11Mb limit is an Apple-Pages issue, or something that is specific to ePubs in general (would not guess the answer is the latter).

    Sorry but I don't know more than the link I gave you.
