Bookmark not working

Postby bryanst10 » Sat Dec 31, 2016 8:53 am

In Android, I used to be able to select the little bookmark icon to the left of any given verse and a red bar would appear. You could then drag that bar down to another verse to move the bookmark. I can still do that in iOS, but in Android it will not activate the bookmark to drag and move anymore. Is a fix in the works?

According to some discussion in the Google+ beta community this is a known feature. If I remember correctly it was on a fix list but wasn't going to be fixed right away.

This appears to be one more "feature" that the rewrite of the app introduced to try and make it more consistent with the iOS version of the app. Too bad that iOS is looked at as the gold standard when we lost so much functionality.

The cruel irony is that this feature is available in the iOS version and works perfectly well.

sandiego, please see this thread: https://tech.lds.org/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 54#p165554

Specifically, on page 5 is a link to the apk which you can side-load in regular Android.

FWIW,

Another bookmark issue.
In Handbook 1, I cannot create (or update) a bookmark anywhere on the page except at the top. If I have scrolled down at all, the <plus> sign on the bookmark page is missing, and when I attempt to update an existing bookmark, it is placed at the top of the page.
I don't know whether other content acts this way. I have tried a few other titles, including Handbook 2, and it has worked fine there.
