Highlight Not Syncing Across Devices...?

For instance, my highlights on desktop and Android are not in concordance...

1) Are the devices registered to the same account?
2) Is the ebook in question one that you purchased from Amazon?
3) Have you tried manually syncing?
4) Make sure you have synchronization enabled on your "Manage your Kindle" page at Amazon.

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes

It seems that only the last reading position are synced, and I can see the highlights online (https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlights), but they're not synced back to other platforms.

P.S. I don't have a Kindle reader, but use the PC and Android versions instead.

Anybody knows if Amazon is going to implement highlight syncing across devices...?

Thx.

Edit: I should say "platforms", not devices... See below...

Have you enabled Annotations Backup?

Quote:
Managing Popular Highlights

If you have a Kindle device, you can turn off having your highlights in popular highlights by turning off Annotations Backup in Settings on your device. If you have a Kindle App, we will be adding this capability soon. Annotations BackUp backs up your annotations and last page read and syncs them across devices. You can also remove highlights you made previously from Popular Highlights.

To turn on/off Annotations Backup:

1. Navigate to Kindle's Home screen and press the Menu button.
2. Select "Settings."
3. Select the desired option next to "Annotations Backup."

Sorry for the confusion caused, I'm only using the desktop and Android apps. I don't have the Kindle device.

Wish Whispersync will sync highlights and notes for other platforms (PC, Mac, iPhone, Android...) soon...

Whispersync automatically synchronises your bookmarks and your reading location among devices registered to the same Amazon.co.uk account.

Is it possible to "manually" sync the highlights between devices...? I mean, they're stored in a file somewhere on the PC/Mac/Android/iPhone/iPad, right...?

BTW, I would like to mention that my highlights are shown at https://kindle.amazon.com, but they aren't synced back to my desktop app nor Android.

Any idea...?

I've edited my previous post and bolded in red the part that says "If you have a Kindle App, we will be adding this capability soon." You only use Kindle apps which can't yet be synced.

I don't know of a manual way to sync.

It seems that it's the desktop PC app not doing the sync part, the Android app apparently syncs the highlights just fine.

Viola... I don't know what changed, or if the blue moon is up there now, but my Kindle for PC app just synced the highlights back...
