Highlight is not working when I read Oct 2018 General Conference talk in Chrome browser. The study mode comes up for scriptures on lds.org but not for the general conference talk. Can you please help fix this? Thanks.

I have usually used my iPhone for underlining and highlighting scriptures and other texts in Gospel Library. But when I look at the same scriptures on my Dell laptop or Surface Pro tablet, the underlines are all shifted right and most of the highlighting is also shifted right but to a lesser degree. Both the Dell laptop and Surface Pro tablet match exactly, both shifted right compared to my iPhone Gospel Library.

On your Dell laptop and Surface Pro, are you using the Gospel Library app for Windows 10, or the older content pages on LDS.org, or the "new experience" Gospel Library Online content pages on LDS.org? There is a known bug on the older content pages on LDS.org, where highlights display as offset by a word or two (depending on how many footnotes are in the verse).

I didn't even know there was a Windows App. I thought it was only available through LDS.org on the computer. Everything matches right now. Thank you.

Really struggling with the new Come, Follow Me content in the Windows App and phone app. If you open a scripture, you can highlight any set of text and put notes and annotations. You can't select text in the new Come, Follow Me section. There are all these dedicated sections to record your thoughts yet you can't record anything in the electronic version of any of these. So I thought I would just cut and paste into OneNote and work on it from there (as gospel doctrine teacher) and the only way to select text is to Select All and then paste and I then lose all formatting and especially links to all the scriptures. You can cut and paste from the web (lds.org) version but you can't edit the content on the web nor app, so it has to all be done offline and not synced with all the other comments I have on my scriptures, etc.

It is great content if we just want to read, but the functionality that makes working on the other resources in the app and on lds.org are lacking in this new yet so critical resource we are all being pointed toward.
