Bug Description

On Windows, when using the "print to PDF" function to convert a book (epub) which has a colon character in the book title, I noticed that this title is suggested as pdf file name without any changes. This causes an error when actually doing the conversion, since the colon is an illegal character.

Such characters should be stripped out of the name before suggesting it as file name, and the given file name should be checked for such problems when starting the conversion.
