Notes / Journal Entry

Postby william.enkey » Sun Dec 14, 2014 12:13 pm

I believe it is wonderful that we have so much of the Gospel material so readily available to us.
I have taken several notes or journal entries on my Android device and on lds.org. However, this feature is not yet available in the Windows 8.1 App. Will it become available? And will it be able to pull from across devices / website to consolidate what one has written?

william.enkey,

Yes, these features, and many others that are not yet available on Gospel Library for Windows, but are on Gospel Library for iOS and Android will be coming in the future. Like the iOS and Android versions--and like the app does already with highlights and underlines--it will pull from other devices and from LDS.org.

The response to the original post was nearly two years ago. Is there a timeline as to when Notes/Journal will be made available?

I think you're looking at the wrong date. The response was made just 2 weeks ago.

As eblood66 pointed out, I believe you're looking at the date I joined tech.lds.org, rather than the date of my response to the original post in this thread--which was about two weeks ago. It would be quite difficult for my post to have been that long ago as public beta for Windows didn't even begin until 1 August 2014--and the first public release was only just over a month ago.

We don't really have 'timelines' for features, as the project is entirely done by volunteers. We've an established feature priority list, but that's about as far as it goes. We're working on reaching feature parity as quickly as we can, but it takes time. The next update to the beta should be quite substantial, however--and will also be quite, quite soon. The ability to add, edit, and delete notes is under development even now, and will almost certainly make the next beta update. Journals and other Notebook features will be coming at a later time.

Today I noticed an interesting bug in the note editor. On the Windows app it will allow you to add a note without actually marking the text. I checked online and it looks like it just saves it as the first color choice (yellow) but the note itself on the app shows up without a marking but with the note below.

Surprisingly, this is actually not a bug in the app, but a bug on LDS.org (and iOS). Technically, the application is marking a highlight on the verse, it's just using a clear highlight as it doesn't need to have a (visible) highlight associated with it in order to be present. LDS.org and iOS don't render the clear highlights correctly, and default back to yellow instead of the proper clear "color." Neither Windows nor Android is affected by this issue.
