Edit book (not responding)

I am not able to use the book editor anymore. It was working but after auto fixing erros from a lot of epub books it now hangs with a blank screen when starting. Re-installing Calibre (4.23) doesn't solve the issue.
Calibre itself seems to work normally. I am running it on Windows 10 2004 x64...

Is this a known issue and is there something i can do to solve this?

Go to preferences->miscellaneous in calibre and open the config directory. Rename or delete the file tweak_book_gui.json which stores the editor settings, see if that helps.
