It seems that many users use and print their notes for bible studies, small groups, Sunday school lessons etc. Some users have complained about differences in the Print / Export capabilities of the new Notes Tool as compared to the old.

Full Disclosure: I seldom print anything. I prepare my sermons and lesson on my desktop and or laptop. I preach from my iPad and teach from my laptop. 

Clearly there are many who print their material and use that in teaching and sermons. So I asked a question in another thread and got the answer I expected. Many people prepare lessons and sermon in the Notes tool and print them for teaching and sermons. One user provided an example of how he used the Print /Export function in the old notes system. See this link

I duplicated the content of his lesson in a Sermon document. I formatted it in a fairly quick and simple way. But if I had I wanted to spend more time on it, I could have used a more complex format. In all it took me about 10 minutes (maybe a little less to create the finished document. I wanted to present examples of how you might be able to use a Sermon document in place of the Notes tool when teaching from a phone, tablet, or computer; as well as printed material. For me it is quicker, more flexible, and because I don;t use paper, more efficient.

This is the Word document the user offered as an example

This is the same content in a Sermon document

This is a simple Handout (Generated in the Sermon document) that could be given to participants

I am not claiming this is the "right way". Simply offering an alternative some users may not be aware of.

Thank you Fred. I've always used the Sermon Editor in this manner, and to my embarrassment it hadn't occurred to me to point it out to those who used Notes.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
