Highlites and notes for indented text


Post by pellingson »

I love the beta version of GLW, but....I have tried everything I can think of to highlite and therefore add notes to indented text and scriptures. As I use the tablet to teach lessons, I would like to be able to highlite just the scriptures I want to use. I also need to take indented, numbered or bulleted text and highlite it with the mouse and then right click to add permanent highlites. At this point, when I try to do that, it just sits there and does nothing.

Am I doing something incorrect, or is this something you are working on. The highliting and notes for main line text is fabulous, but I would like to have it available for all text as well as blue scriptures.

As far as I am aware this is a content issue. In iOS and Android (as well as lds.org) they have the same issue. The text needs to be formatted in a special way to accept and sync annotations. The bullet text is not all formatted this way and it is apparently a big undertaking to get it all to work correctly. So, for now, no highlights on bullets or on certain types of content, regardless of the platform.

the issue also exists online, it is a whole-system issue. I logged feedback about it a couple years ago and it was a known issue...... Church is aware it is a problem...
