Over and over it happens that I highlight passages in my kindle for iPad app, and return to consult them only to find they have disappeared. Has anyone else had this problem and is there any way to avoid it?

On my new iPad I can't drag a highlight, only highlight one word. I can't find a fix. Or other reference to this problem.

I'm seeing this behavior quite often. It's extremely frustrating.

No, I haven't had the problem. I love the software update that allows for one-step highlighting on the iPad. It's so easy.

One-step highlighting? How does one do that? In iBooks, you can pinch-out to select an entire paragraph which is lovely, but that doesn't work in the Kindle app.

I have this problem too! i found that if i highlight a section of a book in my Kindle app for iPad and then hit the home button to exit the app, my highlights are saved. If i highlight and then the iPad goes to sleep without me actually hitting the home button to exit the app, ALL highlights from that reading session will be lost! I never notices this problem prior to updating to iOS6. Maybe amazon needs to update their app for iOS6?? Amazon-- please fix!!!

Same problem here and only after updating! An Amazon problem that needs to be fixes. very frustrating to do all the highlighting and then zip it's all gone. Makes me not like my IPad anymore, as I do some serious reading!
