Can you use normal Kindle highlighting on these "sent-to" resources?

Yes.

I don't think the lack of page numbers in the send to Kindle edition is a big deal. Yes, it would be nice, but really not necessary. As Mark said, if you send it to Kindle it is for the purpose of reading the book. How many times are you going to cite a single book while reading it? Each time you want to cite something you can type in a short phrase in a Logos search and find the page number. I don't think it will be a problem.

No, this is a limitation of Amazon.

It would be possible for Logos to insert page numbers permanently in a Kindle resource (like the visual filter), but they don't do that. Personally, that's fine with me, as when I'm reading on a Kindle I'm reading not studiyng. Perhaps that might be an option they might consider though.

Amazon actually won't put page numbers in Personal Docs.  When they do their conversion it gets stripped out even if coded.  (Believe me, I've tried)  I asked Amazon about this and their answer was basically because personal docs are for docs not books and shouldn't need page numbers.

I know this. What I'm saying is that it would be possible for Logos to add text to the book, so that the book included page numbers in the actual text. (Like it does if you have the page number visual filter turned on.) I'm not saying I want this, but it would be possible.

Thanks Logos.  This is great, and a real service to users.  I continue to be impressed at how much Logos cares about its customers, even after being a customer for 20 years.

Oh!  I see what you are saying.  Goodness I would hate that lol.

I like the fact that I can SEND TO KINDLE and then have my KINDLE TABLET read the book to me while I drive or do other things.

I concur with your last comment. Logos has been so very considerate to their customer base making this possible for those of us who use Kindle.

A question JJ, so far I have been able to send docs to my Kindle from Logos, not entire books as yet. 

Could you send a link on what you did to be able to send your Logos books to your Kindle? Thx much!   John

I have great success with converting the .azw file to .pdf with Kindle Book Converter software ($29) then using my adobe online subscription to convert .pdf into .docx and then creating a personal book. The personal book then is very functional and I was thrilled to finally get some of those books into Logos. Now if I could find a way to share my personal books betwen my desktop and my laptop. The laptop installation says I do not have the license to open the personal book when it appears in a saved layout from my desktop.

Since I have quite a few Kindle books I have justified the $29 and the adobe online subscription (I am easy).

Attempts to convert .pdf to .docx in other ways has been unsatisfying regarding the quality of conversion. Adobe knows how of course.

Appreciate for the info. I checked out the Kindle Book Converter software. 

I have sent documents to my kindle but, a simple question...how do you transfer (drag and drop)? an entire book to Send to Kindle? Thx -
