epub and adobe?

After I compile and hit “export,” the epub file shows up on my desktop as an Adobe file. I tried uploading it to KOBO but when I try to download to check the file, I get a null screen.

I need an epub file to upload to KOBO, NOOK, etc. How do I get a regular uploadable epub file? And, when the time comes, a regular uploadable mobi file? Thanks.

Actually, with both Kobo and Nook you don’t want a regular ePub. They both use Adobe’s layout engine, and will greatly benefit from having the “Adobe Digital Editions” option checked off in the Layout compile option pane. They also should not have an iBooks thumbnail, in the Cover pane. But the ADE page template is probably the one that will fix any weird display issues for you.
