split function bug ?

I do what usually works i.e. place cursor where I want the split to take place & clik on the sigil symbol in menu bar.

but it creates an empty split file and leaves the entire contents still on the file that I was trying to split.

is this a program bug, or an issue with my book. ....

i try a different book & split works as it should - very strange

seems to only happen in this one book & when I split in apparent white space , at left hand margin, before a chapter number

e.g.

end of chapter 23 text
[whitespace]
[more whtespace]
24


the bug is when I try to split anywhere in that "whitespace" above the line that says 24 in this code
Code:
<p class="calibre12"></p><br class="calibre1" />
    <br class="calibre1" />
    <a class="calibre8" id="filepos328697"></a>

    <p class="calibre11"><span class="calibre5"><span class="bold">24</span></span></p>
I see nothing unusual about the code , except that it seems mostly redundant- any ideas on why split is not working here ?

if i back up slightly - put cursor to the right of preceeding text line & split there - all is OK. but move cursor to whitespace between there3 and the next chapter number and it's broke again.

I have found that you must split on a blank line OR at the end of a paragraph.
Trying to split at the beginning or mid-point in a line, or after an image, results in a blank (Just the boilerplate in CV).
I just insert a "return", the do the split at the 'new' end of the line (or blank line after an image).

That is strange. I usually split at the beginning of a line, starting with a new header. So far it always goes well.

so do I - it's just an issue with the specific code in that book I think

maybe to do with this redundant? line
<a class="calibre8" id="filepos328697"></a>

i do not understand the filepos bit but deleting it seems OK !

It's a marker which was presumably used for the online TOC, if the epub has it at least ... maybe now your epub is correctly split, but the online TOC is not working anymore?

That looks like a Baen java-HTML conversion artifact.
Filepos is so the java will navigate back to the EXACT line in the HTML when using a WEB browser to read the book.
IMHO Blow the entire (anchor) line away.

thanks - that what did eventually
( the lazy way - just split at end of previous text line then deleted everything before the chapter numbers in book mode).

calibre still generates a good TOC so nothing lost.
