Syncing Scriptures with the LDS Library App Scriptures

Postby JDW22 » Tue Nov 27, 2018 7:20 am

I'm in the process of changing my scripture study from my elderly hardbound triple combination to the online scriptures found on both and the LDS Library app. Depending on the day and circumstances, my scripture study will vary from one "digital/online" platform to another. My difficulty is when I mark a particular scripture or bookmark a particular chapter when using the LDS Library on my iPad, it doesn't seem to transfer that same marking or bookmark to my iPhone LDS Library app or my scriptures. What am I doing wrong? How can I effectively sync my scripture study on these various platforms so they seamlessly update each other as I study each day?

Your help in guiding this old man through this issue is sincerely appreciated.

I logged on to ask the same question, thank you! I have also noticed that the marking colors are different between my online and smartphone scriptures. This is difficult as I've started marking by subject on my iphone, but it isn't reflected online.
Thank you again.

When you say "online scriptures," are you using the older content pages, or the "New Experience" Gospel Library Online pages?

Are you signed in with your LDS Account (the same account) on each platform?

Are the colors of a marking completely different, or just darker/lighter shades of the same color?
