When you launch wepubl author, you can select the layout of your ebook. An ebook in EPub format can have a fixed layout or a reflow layout.
A reflow layout is when the ebook layout changes automatically depending on the screen orientation and aspect ratio.
Since the layout changes automatically according to the screen, the images and other items may appear differently than they were intended to by the author.
However, automatically resizing the text based on the screen’s aspect ratio means an improved legibility for ebooks that consist mainly of text.
