Emojis greyed out in module and page titles

Jump to solution

A colleague recently created a number of modules and pages and used colour coded emojis to better distinguish categories. They worked well for a while in Chrome but are now greyed out. She opened the modules in Edge and it worked for a while until again the emjois went grey.

See the attachment. The first topic's circles are green and the second are red.

This has now happened to a number of people. Any ideas brains trust?? 

Thank you!

It's a system-wide failture. Numerous instructers posting in the FB group "Teachers Using Canvas," including myself, have reported the same problem.

Hopefully, the colors will come back. However, I should point out that using only colors to distinguish between categories is problematic for color-blind students. I would suggest that your colleague also use shapes (e.g. red circle, blue square, green triangle).

Looks like the Chrome folks have identified the issue: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1266022

Hello Matt, I am having this issue too.  I checked the link you posted but it all looks greek to me.  Does that mean that Chrome is working on correcting it?

Thanks,

Katie

@kmstewart , that is how I'm reading the comments. The one posted today seems to indicate they know exactly what's happening and why. I confirmed that removing "bold" styles from the CSS does make the colors come back. Hopefully it will get fixed in Chrome 97 if not sooner.

Thank you for the news! I wish we could do something to control it but good to know chrome is at least aware of it. 

🤞

I did notice that it is working correctly in Firefox.
