Any way to pin this down to the problem link? I've converted any link with an & or # into a tinyurl, and still get a failure when exporting to epub. ##update## I also tried exporting to html and got the identical error - same mod & offset. I would be happy if I could just turn off any url conversion and get an epub where I could edit it manually. ##
By cutting my 300 page book (1 document) down by half for each test, I got to a 6 page doc that still failed. At that point 1 link had a & - I deleted that link and export worked. I changed the & to X and export failed even though link was invalid. I replaced with tinyurl, and export worked. However, when I go back and change original doc so it has no urls with & or # I still get the same failure. There must be a faster way of finding the problem than my way of dividing the doc. That takes hours to find a single error (It takes me about 5 min to recycle ID after crash). This is the Dr. Watson log of one crash:
In July 2010, Liz Castro mentioned in her blog a script: OEBExportMenuItemLoader.jsx file, which is in the startup scripts folder
In my 5.5, I don't have that script, I have something that is similar, but I know very little about scripts, i.e. can change false statement to true, but don't know how to run it or find output:
Tried to insert image, but got black square, so will type it out:

I've continued to test various cases of hyperlinks to find failing links:
1 works note that there is a #:
2 works note that there is a #:
3 works note that there is a #:
4 works: www.360cities.net
5 works: 360cities.net
6 works: www.360cities.net/image/punta-arenas-chile-mirador
7 works: 360cities.net/image/punta-arenas-chile-mirador
8 works xxx 360-degree view from the Puenta Arenas mirador: 360cities.net/image/punta-arenas-chile-mirador
9 works xxx 360-degree view from the Puenta Arenas mirador: 360cities.net/image/punta-arenas-chile-mirador - a dup of 8 just to see if number of entries is a factor.
10 fails xxx 360-degree view from the Puenta Arenas mirador
In the above list why does 6 work and 10 fail?

After narrowing down to a test list of 4 urls, I was able to find at least one cause of the problem. I had 3 working urls, and one that would cause ID to crash in hyperlink.rpln. I found the problem by looking at the text with story editor. The problem url was surrounded by hyperlink cross reference symbols.
Would paste output, but again am getting black square when I click insert image.
