    In Angel, there was a "printer friendly" icon beside each lesson topic. When clicked, the entire lesson would appear in a new window where a student could then either print it out or copy and paste it into a Word document and save to their computer. It is helpful to copy and paste it into a Word document because then students can use the Word tools to highlight important info and add their own notes such as textbook page numbers. Having these documents at a student's fingertips is especially helpful when trying to reference lesson info from previous semesters' classes that are no longer accessible on Angel.


    In Canvas, in order to accomplish this same thing, a student must copy and paste each individual module page into a Word document which can take a very long time if the professor has included many module pages.


    Please add a "printer friendly" option for an entire module in Canvas so that students can copy and paste an entire lesson into a Word document in just a few clicks.


    Thank you.
