Is it possible to see the full title of a course, when sending a message?

I would very much like to see the full course-title, when I choose a course to send a message via INBOX, is that possible?

Hi  @jsc  Welcome to the Canvas Community.

Thanks for your question, and for your screenshot. That really helped. 

Unfortunately I do not think this is possible. I wish I could be more helpful.

Hi Jeppe -

What happens if you change the nickname of the course?

This lesson will show you how and where to make this change: 

I've done this for my courses each semester, and it makes it much easier to stay organized throughout Canvas -- Inbox, Calendar, Dashboard, etc.

hI @jsc ,

try to add this in your js account theme :

if (window.location.href.indexOf("/conversations") > -1) {

$('#compose-btn').on('click', function(){
$('#compose-message-course-bs abbr').each(function( index ) {
$( this ).empty()
$(this).append($( this ).attr("title"))



Works for me
