I was proofing a book last night, and "my notes and marks" didn't sync octet to my other kindle. Both are HDX's. Anyone else have this problem?

Ah, a forum celebrity I haven't seen post since I started :) Nice to meet you.

I'd suggest force-syncing the first device (Quick Settings, Settings, Sync All Content), then doing the same in the second device.

I finally found the answer. I checked my cell phone and it was in sync with the Kindle I
I left at home. I completely removed the book from my HDX and then re download it from the cloud.

Repeatedly syncing it did not help. The remove completely and re downloading it brought the synced data down with it.

I use TTS to proof my books. Somewhere around here, I`ve got a formula to bring synced data into the Kindle for PC for personal documents.

I will send my manuscripts to the @free.kindle.com to generate Kindle and Text To Speach ready ebooks for a trial run.

I love my Kindle 3G's TTS reader, but it's a bit harder to control where and when to start and stop reading. It's wonderful for listening to books while I drive. My wife can't stand the "robot voice", but to me it's not bad at all. I wish my Kindle Android on my Galaxy would use the Google TTS program to read books on my phone. No reason it shouldn't. I think it's a stunt to get people on the audio sync upgrades and Audible accounts.
