    Many instructors want to copy what they consider to be "all" of their Canvas course, but not what Canvas defines as "all" of their course. In particular, old Announcements almost never need to be copied into new courses, but selecting "All Content" includes these, resulting in additional unexpected cleanup time in the new course. A better user experience would include more details about what "all content" includes -- and ideally, this option would be unified with select-specific-content as a select-all feature on that page, rather than a separate process, in order to show instructors detailed information about what will be copied into the new course, and to give them a chance to revise their selections before completing the process.
