Reading Documents on Kindle Fire HDX

By Nancy C. Muir

Reading documents on your Kindle Fire HDX is a much more straightforward proposition than reading e-books (meaning that there are fewer things you can do to navigate around a document or format the appearance of text). You can get docs onto your Kindle Fire HDX by e-mailing them as attachments to your Kindle e-mail account, or by transferring them from another device after you’ve connected it with the Kindle Fire HDX using the USB cord. On your computer, for example, you can just find the document you want and drag it to your Docs folder.

Tap the Docs button on the Home screen and then locate and tap a document; or tap a doc on the Carousel or Favorites to open it.

Swipe left or right to move from page to page or use the thumbnails that appear along the bottom of the screen when the Options bar is displayed to move around the document.

In OfficeSuite docs, you can make notes and highlights, but you can’t do this in PDF documents. To make notes and highlights in an OfficeSuite doc, press a word to display a menu and then tap Note or tap a Highlight color in that menu.
