General Issues


  • (VSO 856) InvalidCast_Com when making annotations in multiple window scenarios.

Annotations Editor

  • (VSO 676) Invert cancel/delete/save button locations to match iOS, or use the more Windowsy close button and place save at the bottom below and to the right of Notebooks
  • (VSO 775) It's not possible to add a link to an existing note in the Annotations Editor. As a result, it is also impossible to add more than one link to a single note.
  • (VSO 829) Notes/journal entries are prompting to save changes when no changes have been made.


  • (VSO 787) Download button remains selected (darkened) in the media ribbon after an item has been downloaded and the user switches to another chapter.
  • (VSO 788) It's not intuitive to have to select media again to get it to play after it has finished. For example, if I play Psalm 10, then move to Psalm 15, there's nothing that tells the user that, in order to get to Psalm 15's audio, they have to click the Select Audio button. If the audio playback has stopped (the chapter has finished playing or was never started) the app should be switching the audio selection for the user.


  • (VSO 603) Remove the redundant Doctrine and Covenants from Library Contents Entries for sections
  • (VSO 804) A blank semantic square appears between M and N in the semantic zoom view of the Topical Guide.
  • (VSO 836) Trying to navigate to a tagged bookmark via the tags section of the annotations pane fails.


  • (VSO 837) App may be unresponsive during downloading. After initial launch, for example, a user cannot close the change log because the app is downloading the "starter" books.


  • If a user's default browser is Firefox, the print function does not work. The user is hit with an "Access to the file was denied" error. This is a bug in Firefox. In order to use the print feature, you'll need to at least temporarily change your default browser to something else, like Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi, or Google Chrome.
  • (VSO 720) Printing currently only supports the base content, and doesn't include any annotations--notes, tags, links, or markings.


  • (VSO 854) No results for Ensign or Liahona and no results from General Conference past 2013.


  • (VSO 783) The CTRL + Tab and CTRL + Shift + Tab keyboard shortcuts exhibit some peculiar behaviors. Often, the hamburger menu (CTRL + Tab) or New Tab button (CTRL + Shift + Tab) will get put into the rotation. Sometimes, the tabs cycle out of order.
  • (VSO 808) References locations are not rehighlighted when switched back to in tabs. Open a piece of content, for example, Jacob 4. Open a reference and follow it, like "little"s link to Jarom 1:14 in verse 1. Open a new tab. Now switch back to Jarom. Note that the chapter is scrolled, but the referenced verse is not highlighted.


  • (VSO 814) Ctrl + Mouse Wheel doesn't adjust the text size, but literally zooms on the HTML document.
  • (VSO 838) Change log doesn't appear until the user navigates to the home page.

Mobile-Specific Issues

  • (VSO 841) Long titles don't truncate gracefully (or, indeed, at all) in the top bar.
  • (VSO 845) Section covers remain pressed upon returning to their screen after switching tabs.
  • (VSO 846) Pressing "Home" does not take the user to the top of the Home screen (as expected) if the user is already on the Home screen.
  • (VSO 848) Not infrequently, the app will fail to open and crash. When opened again, the open tabs are lost.
