New RCE - pin the sidebar

New RCE - pin the sidebar

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

For more information, please read through the Canvas Deploy Notes (2020-11-18).

While I'm loving getting familiar with the new rich content editor my biggest annoyance is that the insert sidebar disappears every time I add a link or image. As a course designer this is greatly slowing down the way I build content in the RCE. It would be great if once the sidebar appears after you have chosen to insert a link or image that you could pin it open so if you are wanting to add multiple images or links then you can, instead of having to repeat the process every time. I'm finding this to be slowing down the content creation experience not enhancing it.

I looked again. I reported it a while back through the method you described. I was told "...we have a chance to verify if that is intended behavior or not. Because this is how it was built you are fine to disregard that message. So long as you have posted the suggestion to the ideas page, as previously linked, then it can be seen by our engineers." -L1 Canvas Support

I read that it was designed this way on purpose. Thanks for the follow up.
