sideloaded books not showing in books

Hi all, I have sideloaded a book (kfx) into the books folder on my kindle fire. Problem I have its showing in docs but not in books on the device. How can I get the book to show in books and not docs please?

Make sure that the option "Create personal document instead of book" is not selected on the KFX Output tab during conversion. Connect via USB and copy the resulting KFX file to the Fire tablet's "/Internal storage/Books" folder.

The new book should show up inside the Books app. Try setting the Sort to "Most recent" if you cannot locate it.

It will also be possible to navigate to it and open it via the Docs app under "Local storage".

Please ask questions about the Fire in the Fire forum, to where I’m moving this.
