Highlights and Notes don't work in Chapter Summaries

Postby kthcls1976 » Thu May 21, 2015 2:19 pm

I'm unable to make any highlights or notes in any of the Chapter Summaries. Any ideas on this?

I believe this is an issue with the content and not with GL. You can test your issue by logging into the same place online with a web browser, making sure you are in study mode, and see if the highlight works there.

I just tried with several chapter headings in the scriptures and I could not highlight the chapter titles.

Content has to be specially prepared and formatted to allow highlighting and notes. For example, here is the behind-the-scenes code for 1 Nephi 3:7 in English, on LDS.org, that allows it to be highlighted:

Code: Select all

<p class="highlight chunked" uri="/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/3.7" id="para6">

The chapter summaries aren't set up with all the HTML formatting yet. Bonus points if you can pick out the phrases I've highlighted in 1 Nephi 3:7.

This is a problem with the content, as mentioned by both johnshaw and sbradshaw. There isn't anything we can do in the app to remedy the issue.
