EPUB to PDF Doesn't Meet Latest Kindle Scribe Requirements?

Hello, all, and thanks, in advance, for the help.

Before today, I very regularly converted my epubs into pdfs so I can write on them and highlight passages on my Kindle Scribe; however, when I tried to do so today, Amazon sent me a message that my pdf no longer meets their requirements and I won't be able to use the write-on or highlight tools.

I used the "Send-to-Kindle" via email method and doubled-checked that the issue persists even when using the old-school hardwire method.

Any ideas?

Thanks for everything!

Use a USB transfer rather than amazon's services and you wont have any issues. Amazon are just gradually closing off their devices to third party access one brick at a time and hoping no one notices.

Old school hardwired method? Does that mean your USB cable?

Copy over USB has never been compatible with direct write-on with the Scribe, only Send to Kindle.

PDF via USB only works for annotation with ereaders not a Kindle Scribe that have a pen. Some Kobo, some Pocketbook, some Boox and the reMarkable.

Amazon converts the PDF to a fixed layout KFX. I think someone figured how to do it, but not via Calibre.
