Stalled at 'Converting input to HTML...'

I am trying to convert a PDF of one of my textbooks to EPUB for a better viewing experience on my iPad. It is a physics textbook, about 1500 pages long, and contains a lot of images. The status says "Converting input to HTML..." and has been at 1% of that status for over 200 minutes now. I did not know if it would just take an extremely long amount of time since it is a large PDF, but I have read in other threads that this length of time is fairly uncommon. Here is a copy of the job details:

It has not crashed. Let it run... It may take HOURS (24 is not unheard of for really complex coding (that you can't see))

Thanks for the fast reply theducks! I checked it just a few minutes ago and the status changed to "Working..." and the progress jumped up to 47%.
