Study Notebook on iPad

Postby zaneclark » Fri Aug 26, 2011 7:53 am

Is it possible to use the My Study Notebook effectively on an iPad? I have been trying but it doesn't work very well. It looks like a great tool for the desktop, but it would be very handy to be able to use it on the iPad.

I have been using it very successfully on my iPad. I create notes and tags and when I go to my desktop the information is there. What seems to be your problem?

Not able to highlight text on iPad in

Postby cathy_loves_chocolate » Fri Jan 27, 2012 2:26 pm

I am able to highlight text and save to notes on my iPad only through the LDS Gospel Library app. I am not able to do it on my iPad on It seems like there may be a bug or that this is not available yet on the iPad. It would be nice to be able to just go onto and highlight text, etc since I can view my notebooks on my iPad in the only. Any suggestions?

I don't think the code that enables the highlighting was ever designed to run on a touch device. It will need to be redesigned before it will work in a touch browser.

You can, however, access your notebooks in the Gospel Library app. When you are in the home screen of the Gospel Library, there is a 'Notebook' button in the top left corner that will allow you to view your annotations.

Alternative Browser or Workaround?

Postby inventme » Sat Jun 23, 2012 6:09 am

Has there been a fix yet to this issue or a workaround that others have found? Possibly an alternative browser to Safari that would enable a touch device to be able to highlight text on with the study mode enabled? Any help would be appreciated.

To delete highlights, I deiscovered quite by accident that by tapping the highlighted paragraph two times in rapid succession, the remove option appeared. It worked perfectly every time.

There needs to be a help icon on LDS scriptures my opinion!!!
