While you can add a new note from within the Courses tool, you can't attach the Courses tool current selection to an existing note.

I originally posted this as a suggestion, but I'm thinking this limitation is more of a bug, and would appreciate if a case could be opened, if one hasn't already.

Thanks!

This has never worked in 7.0, and I still get tripped up by this issue in the Courses tool.

The limitation makes the note-taking process very inefficient:

  1. I select a portion of text in the Courses tool resource pane.
  2. I go to attach it to an existing note, but the option is grayed out.
  3. I have to open the resource in another tab,
  4. ... scroll down to where the selected text was,
  5. ... then select the text in this new tab.
  6. I then attach that selection to an existing note.

That's four time-consuming extra steps for a process that normally only takes a couple of seconds when not using the Courses tool.

Since Mobile Ed makes heavy use of the Courses tool, I'd hope that this issue could be fixed to work the same inside the tool as it presently does outside the tool.

Will someone from FL please reproduce this issue, and let us know that a case has been opened?

Thanks very much, Philana.

I understand that the team has a roadmap of features/tools they plan to add/improve to the program, and that the Courses tool workflow won't ever be as significant as something like a Sermon Editor.

After all, the Courses tool works well enough, and I am thankful for the feature, its courses, and the team's ongoing work on Logos. Thanks, team!
