Watchtower library update


Recommended Posts

Greetings all!  Say, I just noticed something about the new update in the Watchtower Library.  It seems that unless  I'm doing something wrong (which could very well be the case, LOL) the new update which is 1901, removed a key research tool for me anyway.  I use bible navigation feature to quickly find the books, then the chapters and scriptures I am looking for.  However in 1901 it seems that this feature is now gone.  I am including 4 pictures, the first two are the 1801 that is still on my Windows 10 Samsung Tablet, and the second set are of the ones from the new 1901 update.  Has anyone else ran into this issue?

I does appear to be gone.  The change that bothers me is the left hand side menu.  In 1801 the publications were grouped  (Watchtower, books, etc).  You chose the material source and then were given the choice of name or date.  Now the references all appear in one list and you have to sort through them.

Yes, the "Navigation" option has disappeared.

 

Perhaps we need to send the suggestion to have it put back.

 

The more people that ask - the more attention this feature will receive in consideration to restore it.

 

Anyone want to post the "suggestion" link?

Well since I already sent in a question this week about why we can't add the JW outlook email to our home windows 10 machines and I got a response back already, I don't want to be "That guy" that starts to be annoying to the brothers back east.  lol  I nominate anyone else.  😁😂🤣

At the bottom of the column change the tab from Most Occurrences to Categorized Occurrences.

You get a Windows-based tablet. As for iPad, JW Library is used instead. You can also access the Watchtower Online Library at wol.jw.org.

That's the great thing about a windows 10 tablet, you can have both the watchtower library and the JW library App.  This is simply in my opinion the best of all devices in one.  Another reason I like this new Samsung Windows 10 device is that I can run a true Office 365 as well as the Kingdom Hall Schedules Program.  You can, as I understand, run windows on a Macbook but you have to run Bootcamp or some such program that allows a windows type environment.  I've been an Android guy for years and love it.
