ePub Bookmark Issue

Hi, I'm having an intermitent issue with ePub bookmarks when viewed within iBooks on my iPad 2. Sometimes they work without any problem page after page, but other times I can tap the icon time and time again but the bookmark doesn't appear.

I did have a margin of 0.5em within my CSS, which I have removed, and it seems to make no difference to either the layout of the bookmark issue.

My version of iBooks is 2.0.1
It is an iPad 2 running version 5.1

Any advice on what might be causing this would be appreciated.

Alan

Probably your bookmarks are not correct. Do they work in ADE?

What is your code?

These are the default iBook bookmarks. I'm not adding any code to try and do anything clever.

Or am I supposed to add code, and in fact I'm being really dumb?

So, you are talking about iBooks bookmarks and not ePUB bookmarks?

In that case is seems like an error in the iBooks program. Report the error to Apple so they can fix it.

I've seen other people have had the same problem, and done some trials on other ePubs that I've downloaded. Mine do seem to be more prone to the problem though. I'm using the code below, and think I'll have a look to see if the issue is being caused when either of these is implemented.

.group {
page-break-inside: avoid;
}


.page-break {
page-break-before: always;
}

Both are valid CSS and within the ePUB specifications. They should be honored, but no garantuee on iBooks. Try the BlueFire reader. That one has ADE as core. See if the links do work there.

The bookmarks work fine in BlueFire. They actually work fine in iBooks once a bookmaker has been set. The problem is that sometimes I can tap the bookmark icon in the top-right of the iBooks screen as much as I like, but the red marker just doesn't slide out.

If you don't need to do a page break (like with endnotes in one file), then the best thing is to split the XML as the page breaks so there are none and each place where there would be a page break starts a new XML. That will possibly solve some of the problem.
