Frequently Asked Questions

1. What types of documents can I import and write in?

You can write directly on PDF documents that are imported through Send-to-Kindle. Kindle Scribe does not currently support writing directly on the page in PDF documents loaded via USB-C or previously sent to your library before 11/11/2022. You can also create handwritten sticky notes in millions of Kindle books, as well as PDF (with adjustable layout), DOC, DOCX, TXT, RTF, HTM, HTML, PNG, GIF, JPG, JPEG, BMP, and EPUB documents imported through Send to Kindle. Learn more about supported file types and what you can do with your documents.

2. What types of books can I write in?

You can create handwritten sticky notes in millions of Kindle eBooks. Kindle Scribe does not support handwritten sticky notes on manga, comics, graphic novels, magazines, or newspapers, though they are still available for download and look beautiful on the 10.2” 300 ppi display. Look for supported features, by eBook, under “Product Details” section of the eBook you wish to purchase.

3. What writing tools can I use on Kindle Scribe?

Kindle Scribe offers pen, highlighter, and eraser tools with 5 thickness options each. You can use these tools in sticky notes, notebooks, and on PDFs imported via Send to Kindle. With the writing toolbar, you can also undo, redo, and erase a selection or page.

4. Can I write directly on my books?

To keep pages clean and uncluttered, we enable sticky notes and not writing directly on the page. You can add sticky notes on supported books to take handwritten notes with your Pen.
