Discussion Box Dimensions and Empty Space!

Can anyone tell me why my Discussions page has SO MUCH empty space on the right hand side of the page? 


Is this the same for everyone or have we done something to the stylesheet?

Any advice on increasing the space much appreciated as it plays absolute havoc with any sort of image/video in the discussion are if you are viewing 100% as this picture shows on Chrome.

Many thanks...

Hi  @GideonWilliams ...

The best thing I think I can point you to is this Feature Idea that I submitted a while back:  Do you have the "New User Tutorial" enabled at the account level?  This still won't completely fix the amount of white space that you and I both seen our own own instances of Canvas (we still have a fair amount of white space to the right of Discussion replies...similar to what you are showing in your screen shot).  To be honest, I've never figured out why this is, and I wish that it would span the entire width of the screen.  Smiley Sad

Hey Chris, thanks for sharing the pain!

I enabled the New User Tutorial feature - have no idea what it does but it didn't do anything to the space -even after altering the text box margins...


I'm going to have a word with our IT expert on Monday to see if there is anything that can be done. If I get anywhere I will pass it on. Will also go and vote on read your Idea and the comments too..

Thanks for getting in touch.

Perhaps someone at Canvas would like to enlighten me and  @chofer ‌ why there is still so much white space on Discussions  - even after the idea being Developed and deployed to Canvas?
