Hello everyone. I have a Kindle PaperWhite. I like to read old books that I download as .MOBI files and share the quotes I find. When I make selection in the book, it will share back to the Kindle page, but it shows as from "Personal Document"

Now I read a bunch of threads about using Calibre to convert the .MOBI file and remove the [PDOC] tag, so I did that. However, these books still show with the "Personal" label on my PaperWhite, and when I share a quote from them, they show as "Personal Document" This is very inconvenient, since I am doing the sharing partly as a way of keeping track of research. Can anyone provide any insight???

bump, the only way -for me- to share highlights or notes from personal mobi/kf8 file (converted by calibre) is using the PDOC tag (or the same option for kf8 format) but those books then will show up in the "PERSONAL DOCUMENTS", i'd like to avoid this and to make them appear in the "BOOK" pane.
Is there a way to have this?
