Hi

I’m a fairly new iPad/Apple user so bear with me. I understand that a right click in iOS browser involves a long press, and that this is supposed to bring up the right click menu in the Logos Web App.

The Logos blog article states that a right click should summon the flyout menu.

However this does not work, and I’ve tried it in Safari and Chrome. All that happens is that the whole pane flashes grey, then the word is selected, but I cannot get the right click menu to appear.

Would someone be able to point me in the right direction? I’m using an iPad Pro 2017 with iOS 11.2.6.

Thanks

Richard

Except this post says the long press is now supported so maybe try again?

Yep, as Kevin said, this should work now, though there's some lingering bugs on iOS that need to be worked out (such as the selection handles being too small). What iOS version are you on?

I’ve just tried a long press on Chrome and Safari on a word in the ESV.

I get the “Copy. lookup, share“ menu but no right-click menu.

This is running iOS 11.2.6 on an iPad Pro

Am I doing something wrong?

I'm seeing the same results as Graham. I'm on iOS 11.2.6 on the latest iPad mini.

In Chrome, access the Chrome kabob menu and request desktop version of the web page. Then access the right click menu with long press.

In Safari, you request the desktop version through the Share menu.

That works! Does anyone know if it's possible to save the web app link to the home screen in such a way that it defaults to the desktop version?

Or will the site be adjusted so that it automatically loads the desktop version on mobile anyway (it looks identical from what I can gather?)

Great questions, James!

We lost footnotes. They work in mobile, but not desktop view. Sad

And long press on footnotes selects the entire vs, section.
