Can anybody point out where can I download the Canvas Guides.
I've tried the new interface with no table of contents and it's not working as expected. For example if I search "quiz" or "create a quiz" the first match is How are courses and sections related? , the second suggestion is What are the default Canvas Notification Preferences? and the third one How do I use the Canvas app on my iPhone?
As you can see not really helpful. I suppose it will be improved soon, meanwhile I will go for the old methods.
I've found the get started for instructors and for students here, https://community.canvaslms.com/community/answers/guides/tags#/?taggableTypes=102&tags=canvas%20guid... but I cannot find the same for admins or other roles.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the new forum you can find the guides here: https://community.canvaslms.com/community/answers/guides#/?taggableTypes=102&tags=canvas guides (the middle section gives you the different guides.
Furthermore you can still find the guides in the old area: https://guides.instructure.com/
I'm not sure if @rledda is looking for the same thing I am, but I'm looking for the pdf of the entire guides. Does anyone know where these are in the new community? @chofer @hollands - any suggestions?
In the old community they were on the gray tool bar (right hand side, scroll down a little) of the Canvas Guides page. For example,

Canvas Admin Guide
yeah it looks like those didn't make the trip over unfortunately. I have to say it's one of the points of the new community site I don't like as much. I find the guides section all search based and I miss that right side Table of contents.
Maybe someone can download them and drop them into a group?
I am not sure where these are located in the new Community. When I went to the old site that you pointed out, @kona , the links to the guides weren't working for me to download the PDFs. Not sure if those files were removed???
@biray - I know that I can get an individual guide as a PDF. What I'm looking for is *all guides* for a specific user (like Instructor or Admin) as one big pdf (ex: latest instructor guide is 2429 pages) - similar to what you had in the old community. These were the ones on Canvas Guides - over on the right hand side that were updated with the new releases - see image below. @chofer - I'm not sure what you were clicking on but when I clicked on these links I was still able to download the pdf for each.
