Hi everyone, i have created a book using Sigil, now when i try open it i get: Sigil encountered a problem: Please report it on the issue tracker, including the details from this dialog.

Error info: Cannot load file /Users/mbadenhorst......
Throw in function static Qstring

Recoverable?
Try the Calibre (book) Editor. See what that does.

Did you use unicode characters in the (internal) file names? Not the best choice for the same reason you see...Not all devices handle non-ASCII gracefully

Sigil will warn you when trying to include internal file names with non-ascii characters, but it will still let you do it if you insist. I've played around and was able to save/open epubs with some basic latin non-unicode characters in file-names with no trouble, but I didn't get very fancy.

I'd like to believe that Sigil would always be able to open an epub that it successfully created/saved, but wouldn't bet my life on it (I'd probably bet someone else's though ... like that neighbor with the loud car at 2am).

The question should probably be; "what did you do to the epub AFTER you created it with Sigil?"

As far as being "recoverable" ... it's just a zip archive. Unzip it and see if you can salvage the files inside.

FWIW, That error comes from Utility.cpp which uses QFile on a full unicode filepath and tries to open the file at that path. So it should handle all paths representable in unicode. On Linux boxes filepaths are true bytestrings and can actually contain byte sequences that are not valid in unicode. Other than that, it should work on any path properly convertable to unicode.

Go ahead and bet your life on it then.

I only mean that if I DID bet my life on it, someone would be motivated to ferret out some weird, crazy loophole-of-an epub that wouldn't open after it was saved/closed. And there I'd be ... with no life left.
