Freeze top, left, and side banners of Canvas.

Freeze top, left, and side banners of Canvas.

I have suggested this in the past but it didn't seem to gain traction so I thought that I would bring the idea up again.  It is just a very annoying feature that could be correct rather easily I would imagine.  It would be nice if Canvas froze everything but the interior page.  In other words, let's say you are in the "Modules" page. When you scroll down, the way it is now everything scrolls and you lose site of your courses, grades, calendar, etc. as well as all of your global settings.  Depending on how long your "Modules" page is, for example, you even lose sight of the left hand navigation tabs as well (Home, Assignments, etc.)  I think that those should be stationary, just as if you were to lock columns or rows in Excel.

I wonder if the same idea gets re-submitted 100 times if Instructure would consider it. :smileygrin:

You wrote that this will be open for voting May 4, but it's not open for voting and it's in status 1.5 ready for next cycle. Did it just get overlooked on Wednesday, have the wrong date put in for when it would be open, is such a beaten up idea that never gets any traction that it was left in limbo, ignored because the new UI will be enforced before the voting is done on this one, or something else?

I think it just got accidentally skipped during the opening process.  I'll get it open right away!
