Community "How do I" CanvasLIVE at 11:00 AM MT today: Release Notes Tips & Tricks
This change is noted in Canvas Deploy Notes (2021-02-17) - Canvas Community
After the 2020-01-06 release, when a document is embedded via the New RCE, clicking the file link takes users to a file preview in a new tab.
This can be confusing for users, because it navigates them away from the Canvas page they were on.
Clicking an embedded document link should download the file.
Requires rce_enhancements feature flag
