Using this graphic from Visual Copy as an example, I was wondering if was possible to do things like add “St.” in front of the name, and the work quoted from after the name:

(Or is it a case of being unable to change anything?)

There are two kinds of "visual copy." One kind, I would call "Faithlife Art." Those are essentially photographs, and uneditable. The other kind is "do it yourself." In that kind, there is the ability to change portions of the slid via the text boxes. I assume this is true on mobile as well, but am not in a position to check right now. 

What path did you take to stumble across this and/or create it?

Thanks for your insights.

as for how I stumbled across this and created it, it’s Homily 41 in the FOTC volume  “The Homilies of St. Jerome vol. 1. I highlighted the text and hit “visual copy” from the buttons that popped up.

Unfortunately I don't own that resource to experiment with. I did have the text in the ACCS. When I created the slide on my Mac, I was able to replace the "reference" field with St. Jerome and move the reference box around on the screen. It may be that the specific slide you are using is an "author slide." If that is the case, then "Jerome" is what you get. You could try another style to see if you can get better results. 

Is your goal to simply figure it out on mobile, or to get the slide as you desire it? I can grab my iPad shortly to see what happens on mobile.

It does not appear that the mobile app allows you to have the same control over slides that desktop does. I could manually alter the text and author, but not move around the boxes.

I see that I misunderstood what you were trying to accomplish. I thought you wanted to move elements around (which is possible on desktop, not on mobile). The answer to your question is probably “yes.” If you tap the author field (Jerome), you should be able to change it to “St. Jerome: source reference here”

Thanks for your research. I was wondering if there was a better way to present something of interest. I’ll look into implementing your discoveries
