New formatting of Gospel Doctrine manuals is a problem
The new formatting of the Gospel Doctrine manual makes it much more difficult to use when teaching from an iPad. The special fonts and abundance of white space are beautiful but greatly decrease the percentage of the lesson that is visible at one time. Because teaching only permits an occasional glance at the device, it is essential that a person be able to see as much as possible at a time. Decreasing font size to allow seeing as much of the page as with the previous format makes the words themselves difficult to read.
Since the biggest challenge in teaching from a tablet is having only a tiny part of the lesson visible at a time, having that portion made even smaller is not a good trade-off for eye appeal.
New and much improved
This new gospel library has better functionality and better resolution as well. Then new way to highlight materials is great too especially when you can highlight the different parts in multiple colors to make certain parts of a favorite quote or scripture stick out.
One suggestion for improvement. When you hit a link and it shows in the sidebar I wish an option was available to highlight the scripture/quote there versus leaving the current position to highlight the scripture/quote.
After all the bugs were fixed it's awesome!
The new version was so frustrating at first. All my notes were lost and the chapters skipped around So many bugs and issues. I finally just deleted the app. Then I reinstalled it. All my notes came back!!!! I was pretty happy about that. Over time it has become awesome again. What a great tool. So happy with the program now but not looking forward to another over haul of the program.
