How do I set text color in modules?

Jump to solution

How do I set the color of text in modules?  I want to make all the categories a different color -- say red -- so that students can quickly see the levels of the modules.  (See the attached sample of what I have in mind.)  Right now everything is a dull grey.  Where are the color palates to modify the appearance of the page?

Hello there,  @steven_j_livese ...

Canvas does not have any built-in tools to let you customize the color of the items displayed on your Modules screen that would produce anything similar to what you've included in your PDF attachment.  Meaning...there is no color palate to choose from.  In searching for Feature Ideas that are similar to what you've asked for, I came across these that have now been moved to the Cold Storage‌ area here in the Community:

https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/8341 

https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/6767 

https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/5156 

There wasn't a lot of interest from the Community (as far as votes are concerned), so they haven't moved forward to be considered for development by Instructure.

All this being said...have you instead considered intending your content within your Modules screen so that it has more of an outline-type view?  Check out this Guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10289-4152322062  About half-way down, find the section on "Manage Individual Module Item", and you'll see a screen shot on how to use the "Decrease indent" and "Increase indent" options.

I hope this will be of help to you, Steven.  Please let us know if you have any questions.
