Text header within a module is not showing the whole sentence.

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I organize my class with modules.  Within the module I have text lines (or headers) that I use to give students instructions.  Such as "Read pages 230-250" etc.  Up until the summer they worked great.  Now, the sentences are being cut off, and a "..." are added to the end.  If I hover over the sentence, then the whole sentence becomes a pop-up.  I want the whole sentence visible for students.  I don't think all of my students will intuitively hover over to see the complete sentence.

Is there a way to fix this, rather than making shorter sentences?

Disclaimer: I did switch from a PC to a MAC this last semester, but I don't remember it being a problem until now while getting ready for Fall semester.  Could this be my problem?

Thanks for the help!

Hi  @cjennings1 ​...

You're not alone.  There are several other people here in the Community that have been asking about this.  I've found a couple threads here in the Community that you might want to take a look at:

Module Item Names Are Short

While it's not the best answer in the world and really doesn't have a solution, I hope this info helps!

 @cjennings1 ​, as  @kona ​ and  @chofer ​ have stated: it's not your browser or machine, it's an intentional design change. This relatively unheralded UI tweak, intended to help tablet users, was implemented on June 16 as part of a regular production release. See the comments on the Canvas Production Release Notes (2015-06-06) , starting with morris_admin​'s comment of June 15. As you correctly note, the full text pops up upon mouse hover; unfortunately, tablet users don't have hover text capability.

I just voted on the feature request to which Chris linked, and added a comment; I hope you will too!
