Bug Description

Italicized ellipses (...) show only 2 dots instead of 3 in the E-book viewer.

The E-book editor shows correct number of 3 dots in a row while the E-book viewer only shows 2 but only for italicized ellipses (which hardly look different than the not italicized but may be attached to an italicized word.

<p><i>Hurry, hurry, hurry…</i></p>

Calibre Version 3.4 (but was present in 3.1 before upgrade.
Windows 8.1

Shows all three dots for me on my win 10 machine (I dont have a win8
system to test on, but I doubt it has anything to do with windows
versions). I suspect this has more to do with a
particular font page/size/margin combination. You can attach the actual
ebook file where you see it and I will check if I can reproduce it.

Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you... Life, you know? LOL

And yep... you are so right... I fiddled with the fonts and magnification and if raise or lower the magnification or use any other font, 3 dots appear instead of only 2. It only occurs at default font (I think Times New Roman) and whatever other default settings it has.

Changed in calibre:
status: New → Fix Released

LOL I don't know what that means... except that I'll get a fix in the
next update? Thanks so much! It was just such a "very-specific-bug."
that had to have all the pieces just right for it to occur! I was
worried that I was going to have to go through my whole book and look
for any italicized ellipses and convert them to non-italics... Thanks
for the fix! And thanks for such a great program!
