recently some default style has been added to some links that I have created in a number of pages across all my courses. it is as follows: class="instructure_file_link inline_disabled". So be it, but it adds a download icon after all of those links, which are not meant to be downloaded--they're just links to other pages in Canvas. Any idea why this was added? Updates to the link options in the RCE perhaps? It has messed up my already styled pages. So how do I have this changed without having to edit every link on every page?
Just a silly thing to add an image by default when you don't know where it's going to land.
I have noticed this too. It's especially weird because it doesn't appear next to all external links. Here's what it looks like on one of my Canvas pages, with the icon only appearing next to the link to Larson et al. (2021):
