epub and input-fields in iBooks

  1. 7 months ago

    I'm new to pubcoder and I've created an epub-Book with tumult hype content using input fields to let the user write some content in it. I've also use "select-fields" to develop little exercises.
    If I open the book with Adobe digital editions everything works fine. If I use iBooks (which most of my students use) only the select-fields work. The input fields get deactivated.
    Do anyone know why this isn't working in iBooks/Apple Books?

    Hello Michael,
    iBooks forcibly disables input fields. Use Adobe Digital Editions or XPUB with PubReader instead.

    OR, use a content-editable div:

    <div contenteditable=true>Text</div>

    this seems to work in Books for Mac, but not on iOS anyway

    No, it doesn't work in iBooks for Mac either :-(
