In Course Navigation, click the Settings link.
Locate the Canvas Elementary Theming feature option . To enable the feature option, click the feature option button .
To confirm that you want to update the theme, click the Okay button.
Canvas displays a new font, Balsamiq Sans, in the Global Navigation Menu , Course Navigation Menu , and Breadcrumbs bar .
Note: If the feature option is turned off, the font changes from Balsamiq Sans to the Canvas default, Lato.
The Balsamiq Sans font also displays in the Rich Content Editor . You can also select the font Architect's Daughter from the Format menu in the menubar .
If your course has not customized the Course Navigation Menu, visible links default to Home , Announcements , Grades , Modules , and links for LTI tools .
All other links will display the Visibility icon for instructors , which means they will not display in Course Navigation for students .
