Hey everyone, I'm just looking for a little bit of advice on an epub issue.

I'm trying to deliver a book to the iBookstore with iTunes Producer. I've gotten an error that says a file called calibre_bookmarks.txt is not a part of the manifest. I used sigil to input some HTML code into the manifest part of the opf file, but it still didn't work.

I think the easiest thing, obviously, would be just to remove the file from my epub package (as it is unnecessary to what I'm trying to deliver), but I can't seem to find its location. Is there an easy way to remove that particular .txt file?

If not, I would appreciate some sort of HTML fix that I can apply through Sigil.

Here is the error text, if this is of any help:

"ERROR ITMS-9000: "Book_Title_-_J._R._McConnery.epub: The book asset contains file(s) not listed in the OPF manifest: Book_Title_-_J._R._McConnery.epub:/META-INF/calibre_bookmarks.txt."

Thanks in advance if anyone can help!

Step 1: Don't open the book in Calibre's eBook viewer.

Step 2: Use the Tweak Book Calibre plugin. Explode the book, then go into the META-INF directory and drop the calibre_bookmarks.txt file and then rebuild the book.

In Calibre's viewer, you can turn off page tracking and thus, it won't add any files to your ePub.

When I look in the META-INF folder, the only file is a single XML called 'container'. Has Calibre created a ghost in the machine?
