You are correct about Kindle Fire..I can't find any way ro not see an archived book on my Fire..
Kindle 3 After a few hours and a sync..they no longer appear in archives...this was Books on the Knob's whole point...remove from archive on K3 to prevent all the freeze/restarts.
I still get a few restarts because I still have too many books in K3, but none of the repeat, repeat, repeat.

I know that was her point - that's why I am surprised I don't see it working on my K3/KK. I will try waiting few hours as you suggest. But let's not hijack this announcement thread.

The extension is very good for single page articles however many articles are broken up into multiple pages and if I want to read the entire thing I must send individually to my Kindle. Would like to see an option that the extension keeps the links to each page wanted and when the user selects to send to kindle the pages are combined and then sent as one file.

You just need to use an extension to put the article on one page. I use https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pojkjlgamiogkhagabbejodnkcnnbfdb

I downloaded the extension but it does not work. I click either 'send to Kindle' or 'preview and send' and absolutely nothing happens. Any idea why? Great idea, would be nice if it actually worked!

Roy that would work on some pages but the extension is not all inclusive. Also having a single extension that can accomplish this would be preferable rather than having to rely upon multiple extensions working in concert.

Miss Matthews, it works for me. Did you set it up? I don't think it can work without being told what to do.

If you click on the K icon, you should see a choice for Settings.

To help me catalog my books, I have started to use a program on the computer (it is easy to use) called calibre. It is a FREE download, I have put all the books except my priority reading list into the program. It keeps the books. You can get all the data info (like description, tags, and covers from the web in a bunches for the books) or you can edit the tags to be whatever you want which is what I did so the tags there mirror my collections on the Kindle. You can transfer books from Kindle to the program by using the USB plug and copying in a couple of quick steps. This way I have all of my books and it is easy to search by a collection category. When I see a book I want to read or re-read, I select from the program and send back to my kindle or pull it from the archive folder on the Kindle itself. It is really easy to use and the website has tutorials as well. Another nice feature is it will convert web articles and non-Amazon purchased books into Kindle formatting. There is a nice demo on the computer. Just see calibre-ebook.com. This has made my life a lot easier.

Is there any way to get it to work download links (like .mobi files from sites that have older books available). It doesn't seem to show up when I right click on the link.

No - this is for web pages only, not downloads. Save such book to your computer and then use "old" http://amazon.com/sendtokindle to send it to your archive and/or device(s).

Kevin,

You state "You can send content to one or more Kindle devices and Kindle reading apps or you can simply archive it in your Kindle library for re-download later."

From your statement, I concluded that I would be able to choose to send only to either the Kindle for PC app or the Kindle Library (where I could use USB to port to my Kindle 2).

However, I find that the settings tab only allows me to send to the archive if I also send via wi-fi or whispernet. This is different behavior from the Send to Kindle PC app.

Would you advise?

Thank you Amazon,
This has been such a wonderful application to make my Kindle Fire even more useful for reading.

I don't know about "Kevin", but I would suggest you just uncheck all the delivery options except "Archive document in your Kindle Library"

Hi,
I think that this new features is really great. But I've installed this in my Chromium browser (the Chrome version for Linux) and it isn't work. I have the icon and the I can see the menu, but any of the functions works.

This is awesome and has a lot of potential. I would like to be able to name my content before sending it to my kindle. If I get multiple pages from the same website they are named the same thing.

In the last few days, I've noticed a curious feature/bug with personal docs sent to my Kindle Fire (1st gen) with this Chrome extension. The feature is that the document icon now contains a thumbnail of the first image in the document. That's kind of nice compared to the old text icons, but it would be nice if the text (document title) was also visible in the carousel and the Docs grid view.

The bug is that I also get a "phantom" icon for the same document, which can't be opened or removed. Rebooting the Fire seems to clear up some of these phantom icons. I'm pretty sure the bug and feature began at the same time, a couple days ago.

Another apparent new "feature" in the last few days is that the line spacing for articles on my Kindle Keyboard is extra large. I have to change the spacing to small in order for it to look normal. Web pages that I send with other extensions, like Klip.me, have normal line spacing.

I have found that if the articled clipped has images, then klip.me works much better than STK. I'm sure that STK can be improved, but right now, klip.me is winning the race.

Kevin, it appears that this Chrome extension is requiring me to select at least one Kindle device to receive the sent pages/articles in addition to the "archive to kindle library" option. I'm interested in only sending to the kindle library and then downloading to kindle later with the "Cloud" section of personal documents "Docs" on Kindle Fire.

If I do not select a specific Kindle in the Chrome send-to-kindle extension, the article never sends out and I'm sent to the "Settings" page each time. This is confusing since the "History" page shows the document as being sent and there is no error or warning stating that it was never actually uploaded to my Kindle Library.

I regularly use "Send to Kindle" (as a Chrome extension) from both my desktop & notebook, & prefer it over Readability & Instapaper. But beginning about 4-5 weeks ago, it stopped saving & displaying a record (history) of the 20 most recently sent articles under "History" (which appears when clicking the "k" icon on chrome). This is (was) a very useful feature, but now it only displays the following message when I click "History" from either desktop or notebook pc: "Sorry, Send to Kindle History is not available." Does anyone know whether the developer (or Amazon) has chosen (for whatever reason) to deactivate this function? Or, is this more likely a technical problem on my end, & - if so - any suggestions of what I might do to correct (i.e., remove & reinstall, or try something else?). Thanks in advance (: ...

With a pdf directly displayed in chrome, I consistently get the "Sending Content" display hanging indefinitely in Chrome. Anyone else encounter this?
