IOS 14 Problem with Books App and Calibre

Bug Description

Just updated to IOS14 on my iPad. I use Content Server to transfer large PDFs to Books and it always works great. Since updating, the 'copy to Books' command is no longer there. When pressing Books, it says "converting to PDF" [even though the document is already a PDF] but afterwards it's not found in Books.

I realise that this is more an Apple IOS issue, but perhaps Calibre could suggest a workaround to transfer large documents (PDFs) to iPad. Thank you.

Calibre 4.23, 64bit
Windows 10

I'm afraid I no longer have a functioning iOS device to test with so its
difficult for me to help. What "Copy to books command"? Click the
download button and download the PDF file and then open it using Books
or whatever you like. Although given the general trend of Apple software
I wouldn't be surprised if they decided downloading things was beneath
the dignity of their users.

Thanks - weird but not working following the upgrade to IOS 14. I'm using iMazing instead which is fine, who knows what their issue is. Yes, used to work by downloading and then opening using Books but for some reason it no longer does. Thanks!
