Inconsistent highlighting in manuals

Postby marykozy » Sat Mar 12, 2016 10:31 pm

Last year when teaching New Testament in Gospel Doctrine, I usually had no problem highlighting text in the teacher's manual (though my issues may have started at the end of the year). With Book of Mormon this year, when I try to highlight text in the teacher's manual, I only get a menu with Copy, Share, Define and Search on my iPad running iOS9.2.1. Anyone else having this problem? I loved being able to highlight things I wanted to focus on and now that capability appears to be gone.

This certainly sounds like the problem described in this post, which is a long-standing issue that affects certain content such as bulleted lists.

If so, then it is not a new problem, as you surmise, but rather a problem that only affects certain content, and so you are noticing it now because you happen to be trying to highlight some text that has the problem.

Thank you! I searched for previous content, but as this is my first foray onto these boards, I obviously didn't get the search terms quite right. I appreciate you pointing this out. :)

I am having the same issues with highlighting certain text. It is not all bulleted items. Have the developers addressed it and any fix in?

I understand the next version fixes that issue. THere is an alpha available but any notes put into it will be lost so I havnt spent any time with it. I assume a developer will give a more complete answer.

Gospel Library 4.0 will deliver content in a new HTML5-based format, which will allow any text to be highlighted, including bullets, titles, etc.
