Still no absolute fix for kindle books showing in docs?

Hello!

I have researched this through the years till I'm blue in the face. I still cannot get "some" of my books to show up under books rather than docs on my Kindle Fires using "send to kindle" or sideloading. (My default is "send to kindle" because I want them archived.)

I typically convert EPUBS to MOBI and remove the [PDOC] tab. I leave it blank though I've tried the [EBOK] tag also. It occasionally works but most of the time the show in docs. I still can't find any recent info on instructions that works all the time.

Is there any new details on this or am I just missing something?

Thanks so much for any insight!
Nancy

If you send to kindle then amazon reprocesses the book to always make it a personal document, regardless of what you do.

Well that would explain my ongoing problem I guess. I assume sideloading would work... but then I don't have them archived. Bummer...
