Calibre conversions not opening in BookDesigner

I have a ton of LRF files I've been working on fixing up and adding proper table of contents for. Problem is I try to use Calibre to convert them to .lit, since that is about the only format which keeps italics and such, but I get this error with the converted file when trying to open it in BookDesigner.



I have tried about five different LRF's and this happens, even tried various different settings in Calibre. I also get an error like this when doing LRF to MOBI and a few other formats. The only one that seems to work is FB2 format, problem is with that conversion all the text is bolded for some reason.

So does anyone have any recommendations or can address what the problem is here? How come all of my .lit converted files fail to open in BookDesigner with that odd error?

Also for the Calibre programmer, if you see this: is there any chance you could make it so LRF or EPUB to RTF retains italics? I hadn't noticed until now that it was losing them everytime. I use RTF and HTML to fix books up in Word 2007 using the error checking tool to fix broken sentences, typos and such.

I was wondering about this too. Is there a way to keep italics when converting from Epub to RTF?

Have you tried this with the latest version of Calibre? There have been several improvements to RTF input and output in the last couple of releases.

I have just tried an EPUB to RTF conversion. Italics were retained.

You have user_none to thank for that. He's extremely busy, but managed to squeeze in some fixes to the rtf conversion recently.

Yay! Thank-you, Thank-you. I tried it and it worked

Edit: It worked, but only the 1st chapter was converted!
