Re: Why is there No Simple Text File of the Standard Works?

At least with epub it should be easier to strip out the footnotes and superscripts--and you don't have to deal with the two column format of the PDF files. Epub is basically a zipped archive of html files, based on XML. I think python ( and other languages) should be very capable to parse out the te...

Re: Why is there No Simple Text File of the Standard Works?

Update to my previous post: The epub book of Mormon file I downloaded from lds.org today 30Oct2017 has no footnotes and converted beautifully to plain text as per my above post. However the other epub scripture files on lds.org today all do have footnotes (contrary to my poor assumption). And the ta...

Re: Why is there No Simple Text File of the Standard Works?

No one answered the question 'why'. Lacking an answer from the church, I'd guess that it has to do with control of the copyrighted text. There are lots of ways to 'hack' a text copy of the scriptures based on files you can download from [url]lds.org/media-library/ebooks[/url] I will explain on relat...

can no longer highlight more than one word

I just noticed that I can no longer highlight anything more than a single word. If I long press, a word gets highlighted as normal. but if I try to drag either endpoint to expand the highlighed area to include more words (like an entire verse , or even just one more character) the app seems to reset...

I tried my same machine but with windows7, firefox 13, and it worked. I went back to ubuntu, and reinstalled flash. This started things working for firefox, but it still doesn't work for chromium. As an aside, the video/audio synchronization (or lack thereof) is pretty distracting...It seemed to hap...

Having read your question more closely, it seems like you want to export from your iCal application, INTO the stake/ward calendar....That functionality has not, to my knowledge been provided. I kind of doubt that it will be. The church seems to like us to have to manually enter everything the calend...

I believe that the export function will export the combined details of all the calendars you are subscribed to, without r...
