Restrictions on Editing Syllabus?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to update the Syllabus for my course, but the changes do not save. I'm wondering if there are restrictions on editing the Syllabus page? Is there a maximum length? Anything else that would keep it from updating? 

Here's what is happening: 

  1. I click the Edit button at the top.
  2. I select and remove the current Syllabus text.
  3. I paste in new code from my web editor (VSCode, in case that matters).
  4. I click Update Syllabus button at the bottom.
  5. The page flashes the new content for a second or two, and then immediately replaces it with the old text that I deleted.

I  have tried blanking out the Syllabus so there is no text on the page at all. I'm at a loss. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your time,

Apparently this is a bug that has to do with the a11y tool. At my school, a campus admin can manually help you. There is no automated fix yet afaik (not that I'd be on the list of people who are the first to know such things).
