Bug Description

The conversion works beautifully — thanks!

The only problem I've found is that the internal hyperlinks convert as empty. They're still formatted as links, but there's no URI/bookmark/anchor/cross-reference.

I'm running Calibre 2.30 on a mid-2012 MacBook with OS X 10.10.3.

If you could erase the archive once you've downloaded it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

That docx file does not contain any working internal links itself. The only two working internal links I could find were the links to Two Candles and Rose & LIly in the Table of Contents at the end, and both those links work in the epub as well.

You can check if a link works in the docx file by holding down Ctrl and clicking on it, Word should then follow the link. If there are any such working links in the file that dont work in the epub, then let me know where in the file they are.

Sorry ignore my last comment, for some reason I read your bug report an docx to epub, not the other way around :) I'll look at it again.

David -- per http://calibre-ebook.com/bugs :

"If you are including some sensitive data in your bug report like a copyrighted book or a debug log, mark the bug as "private", then the data will not be visible to all. You can do this by finding the location where it says "This bug is public" in the top right area of the bug's page and clicking the yellow icon next to it."

This prevents anyone from seeing the bug report and/or attachments unless they are cleared to view private user information (or are currently subscribed to the bug, like the reporter).

Just for the future. :)
