More obvious page breaks

Postby wrigjef » Sun Nov 10, 2013 3:21 pm

When following a lesson using gospel library and servers others, possibly even the instructor, it would be nice if gospel library had more obvious marks showing exactly where the page breaks are in the print version. Particularly in the P/RS manual

Different mobile applications handle this in different ways. On the Android, for example, the page numbers are added to the file at exactly the point where the page breaks. Since then, I have not had any trouble at all when the instructor mentions a page number.

For the iPad small low contrast numbers appear approximately where pages are but it would be nicer if they were easier to see if there was an actual break, perhaps with a line across the screen.

More visible page breaks were tried in GL2.5, but its implementation was very disruptive to the flow of actually reading the text. I quote an example from the Lorenzo Snow manual. In Chapter 2, there is a quote from Revelation 14:6. It is displayed as follows:
"I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto

- Page 55 -

them that dwell on the earth;"


With the ability to vary the size of the text in the GL app, even lines across the screen would be similarly disruptive, especially when the page break occurs in the middle of a sentence.
