Tags & Notes embedded within Scripture Text

Postby christopherst » Mon Apr 13, 2020 9:39 am

Could it be possible for each user on their own profile to have tags embedded within Scripture text?

I have an image of an LDS Scriptures app that is no longer giving support for the app, but has this feature.

Here is an image of what I mean:

Tags could be more helpful if they were located within the text of each users profile because it would be visually easier to see what has been already been posted within the scriptures. I think its great to have a tag that one can search and find those tags in which ever verse or verses of scripture, but it seems helpful to be reading the scriptures and have the tags visually embedded.

Another thing is having tags dockable on the footnotes sidebar. Make two rows for the sidebar one for footnotes, the other for tags with a search function. Tags placed on the side can be expanded to reveal this example for "Seraphim and Cherubim". Is it possible when tags are placed in text that they can be color coded with the option of adding notes embedded also? Another thing is the ability to group tags together for talks, topics, and methods of study?

Example all together on ChurchofJesusChrist.org.

I think these would be totally awesome to add into each persons profile for personal scripture study.

Sincerely,

Have you used tags in the Gospel Library app or Gospel Library Online? If you select text, you can add a tag to it. When a verse has a tag or tags, there's an indicator that appears in the right margin that you can tap to see the tags in the related content sidebar. On a wider screen, you can keep the related content sidebar open, so you can see the tags for each verse along with the footnotes, as you scroll, without having to tap on the margin indicator. All of the tags you've created can be seen in one place in the "Tags" tab under the Notes section.

I understand, but I was wondering if it could be embedded with the icon and the colored tags. I updated the first image that shows an example, along with other images from another non existing app.

I'ts really hard to see on a small iPad (which I do not own), let alone an iPhone or mobile device. I use a MacBook Pro for a disability I have. I think embedding the entries would be visually helpful rather than having the small icon that could represent multiple tags in one icon.

Let alone if one icon represents multiple tags, those tags couldn't be colored unless it was visible on the right sidebar.

Here is an example of what I mean about users being able to add their own content into the scriptures as an authentic member of the Church that only the user would see.
