Help! Uploaded document to kindle paperwhite, doesn't appear in kindle home

I converted a book to mobi. I connected kindle paperwhite to computer via USB, and Calibre recognized the device was connected. I clicked Send To Device, and I even browsed the kindle filesystem. I see the book present in the kindle, along with my other books that were sent to the device directly by amazon.

Still, my converted book doesn't appear in the kindle library home screen. Am I doing something wrong?

I tried deleting it and using azw instead. No difference.

Yes, the problem was clicking "All" versus "Downloaded."
I had previously double-checked to make sure I clicked "All" because you would expect it to contain ... y'know ... all. But that's not how it works.

All does NOT contain all. I had to click Downloaded, and then I could see the stuff I uploaded into the kindle via USB.

Amazon apparently doesn't hire any User Experience designers, cuz, that is the exact opposite of how it should be.

But anyway. Problem solved. Thank you.

And in that they're certainly not Robinson Crusoe
