    Dear Canvas

     

    Recently you updated the number of characters visible in the module main page.  Now all of my assignments are truncated and end with ....

     

    Why would you do this?

     

    Does this look informative to students?  Why is there so much white open and available space between my assignment name and the number of points it's worth?

    Now, I heard it was to make things easier to read on phones and tablets.  Except it's not. Here's my tablet.  This is awesome.  Totally - I like being able to see 10 letters of an assignment.  And since you can't hover on a tablet, why have you done this?

     

    I would like to know who, in their right mind, looked at this and said, yeah.... that looks great!

    I would like to vote on increasing the display size of assignment names in the modules.  Whatever it was before was even too small.  So I don't know if this is a vote on increasing the allowable text letters, or if it increases the width of the pixels used in that category.  No, I don't use the app for Canvas because I don't like how it's set up or organized.  It looks entirely different than the web based version, nothing is indented and so on, so that's not a reasonable alternative request Canvas.

     

    Thanks
