I can across this issue myself last night and it’s annoying as Hell. I don’t know why Amazon have decided to do this, if I had to guess I’d say money is at the bottom of it. They don’t give a hoot about their customers, only their bottom line.

The workaround you suggested is great, however, if you can’t get to a PC and If you’re using an iPad you can copy and open the pdf in the Kindle app. The formatting isn’t as good but you can still save fic as long as you have an internet connection.

Late reply. Sorry. But the issue was resolved. I think perhaps we collectively made enough noise about it on Twitter and elsewhere. I'd like to think we helped Amazon get on board to fix it, rather than just ignore it.
