Hi Kona,

Your swift response is much appreciated. Following the links you sent from previous threads, I used Google Docs to successfully embed the file into my Canvas pages and from here there is no option to download the file. This solution seems ideal.

I am new to this Canvas community but I immediately feel a wealth of support.

 @kjdoner , greetings! Are you trying to prevent students from downloading files? If so, then I'd recommend checking out the information on this conversation - https://community.canvaslms.com/thread/15871-possible-to-show-a-doc-but-prevent-downloading

Hello! Is there a solution to removing this new download icon/link:

That doesn't involve the hassle of uploading to Google docs and creating an embed that way, or convincing our Admin to add the JScript above?

We were happily using some HTML code with ScribID but for some unfathomable reason, Instructure added this new download icon that seems to make it past CSS and HTML work-arounds.

Many thanks!
