Bug Description

I am trying to convert a .epub file into .rtf using Calibre 1.17 on my Apple 10.6 system. Most such conversions work fine for me, but for some reason this book results in an .rtf file that all text editors are calling "invalid" - won't open it. No error from Calibre. What's going on?

Changing the component for this bug.

 assignee user-none
 tag rtf-output
 status triaged

Changed in calibre:
assignee: nobody → John Schember (user-none)
status: New → Triaged
Changed in calibre:
status: Triaged → Fix Committed

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.

 status fixreleased

Changed in calibre:
status: Fix Committed → Fix Released

Thanks! What was the problem?

Mike
