.rtf conversion bug - cropping characters.

I have this in epub source
[code]
GREENLAND</font></p><p class="calibre_9"><img src="images/00248.jpg" class="calibre_73"/></p><p class="calibre_9"><font size="6">November 5</font></p><br/><p class="calibre_9">He'd always pictured the end of the world being a bit more … industrial. Loud</p><p class="calibre_20">machines, cars crashing, people screaming, guns-a-blazing. Perhaps a world-cracking bomb that would shatter the Earth into bits.<br/></p><p class="calibre_20"> But here, there was nothing. Nothing at all, save for some calf-high grasses, endless rocks, and the towering white vistas of glaciers raised high on the horizon.<br/></p><p class="calibre_20"> Greenland was far from the minds of most apocalyptic visionaries. And yet here he was, the man responsible for stopping the end of the world. No cars crashing, none of that nonsense. Just a tiny virus, and some pigs.<br/></p><p class="calibre_20"> Sydney Chapman
[code]

when calibre converts it to .rtf it loses initial character of some sentences - see below - how come, & is this a known bug ?

calibre rtf output - preprocessing unticked:
" He'd always pictured the end of the world being a bit more … industrial. Loud
machines, cars crashing, people screaming, guns-a-blazing. Perhaps a world-cracking bomb that would shatter the Earth into bits.

ut here, there was nothing. Nothing at all, save for some calf-high grasses, endless rocks, and the towering white vistas of glaciers raised high on the horizon.

reenland was far from the minds of most apocalyptic visionaries. And yet here he was, the man responsible for stopping the end of the world. No cars crashing, none of that nonsense. Just a tiny virus, and some pigs.

PS calibre's conversion to .txt is OK, only the .rtf is buggy: txt output follows
"BOOK ONE: GREENLAND

November 5

as per dwanthny's comments in other thread, I also think it is a bug in .rtf conversion.

I have seen this before with another book, but don't recall which one - sorry.
I think in that case also I went pdf to epub via a program with that name, then into calibre, then into .rtf via calibre conversion. if I do recall the title , or can find another example, I will add it here.

I noticed that every place you lost a Letter, followed this bit of nonsense. (ending a paragraph with a Break, then the standard end paragraph tag. Note: that it appears those are false paragraph ends to boot

gigo ?

not really - if the book displays OK in via calibre's own epub reader, and I then ask calibre to convert it to .rtf , it seems reasonable to expect the conversion to not lose characters. calibre can convert it to .txt OK, so why can't it convert the same ( inelegantly programmed) source to .rtf without losing stuff en-route.

PS I don't know how the false paragraph ends got in there, I just read the books :-)

They aren't "false" paragraph ends, they are proper paragraph ends that belong there.

I guess at this point you should put a detail bug report into the tracker.

I am getting the same bug with another book - this time it is a .mobi source. I lose the 1st character of each paragraph when converted to .rtf

it may only happen when a source has indented paragraphs ? needs more testing / others to confirm that they can reproduce the bug
