Note Covers Article

Postby dfechser » Wed Jan 02, 2019 9:00 pm

When I open a new note in Chrome it covers the article about which I was going to write the note.
I can work around this problem by opening the same article in another tab. I also assume that I can save the new (empty) note and then open the Notes page in another tab - add to or edit the note there. Both of these feel like work-arounds, a bit clunky.
How do I move the note off of the front of the article so I can see what I want to write about?
Thanks.

I'd recommend sending feedback using the link at the bottom of Study.LDS.org. I think it was designed that way, because it mimics Gospel Library for iOS and Android – but if there is sufficient feedback, it might be reconsidered. Some options for the developers/designers would be to open the note editor in a new popup browser window, or to provide a button on the note editor as it currently is, that allows the user to pop it out into its own window (similar to the pop-out button when composing an email in the Gmail web interface).

I, too, find this to be a big problem with the "New Experience." Thanks for your thought on opening another tab/window with the same article. That's a good idea. I keep going back and forth between the note window and reading the text. I hope the fix this.

I like your suggestion to allow a method for moving the note to it's own window. I'll submit the suggestion.
You all should submit feedback for this as well. I'm sure they see no need to change unless they get sufficient feedback.

I submitted some feedback on this, too, as part of my other post.

While feedback may help, we don't have any exposure to the decision-making process on what they decide to do with the church tools. We can always pray :)
