    So, by floating or fixed, I’m not sure what you mean. Do you mean “Word Processing” or “Page Layout” mode? Those are the two modes you can use in Pages. You switch between them in File, Convert To Page Layout or File Convert To Word Processing.

    Assuming that is what you mean, you would want to use Word Processing for EPUB format. The whole point of EPUB is that ebook readers can allow the user to change the font type, size and other attributes. So the text will re-flow depending on their settings. Images can be used, but they should be inline with the text so that they always appear at the same place in the text no matter how large or small the font size. So this is the format for novels, for instance.

    The opposite would be to use PDF which sets a specific layout just as if the text and images were printed on paper, but as a digital document. The user can then zoom in on the page, but they can’t change the size or position of text on a page. You could use either Word Processing or Page Layout for that. The latter would be for things like text books or and such.

    Thanks for your answer.

    Do you have a video thats shows how to prosess a document that you will export from pages as epub and you can choose if you want it as flowable or fixed layout. Thanks….

    Geir: That’s not something you choose when you export. You decide this when you start. Just create a normal Word Processing document format (the default) and then keep all of your images inline.
