Bug Description

Calibre 5.3.0, Windows 10

Steps to replicate:

1. Annotate a section.

2. Use ebook-editor to modify the ePub in a way that the annotation highlight no longer appears. (In my case, I removed a bunch of <p> </p>s from a fanfic).

3. Use "modify this highlight" on the broken annotation.

I would've expected that this would allow me to re-highlight the section without losing my notes. Instead, it just silently failed. I was able to recover by grabbing my notes from the annotation browsers and re-creating it entirely.

Thank you.
