Change the quill icon to a pencil icon for Compose a new message

Idea created by Erich Holtmann on Aug 30, 2017
    This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

    In the Messages section of Canvas, the way to compose a new message is to click on the icon of a quill. Some students don't even know what a quill is. And several of my students though the quill icon was a picture of a leaf.


    A pencil is a standard icon on the web for "edit." Let's make the button easy to find by changing the quill to a pencil. (See attached files for examples.)
