Why doesn't Canvas allow HTML editing of files in the Files folder?

Jump to solution

I read a recent post about editing HTML files in Canvas. It said I had to download an HTML file from the files folder to my computer, then use my own HTML editor to modify the file, then upload it again to the Files folder. Canvas has its own built-in HTML editor, which I find to be quite easy and efficient to use for creating pages. Why am I not allowed to use that editor to modify html files in my Files folder for my course? 

I strongly recommend that Canvas allow for the editing of html files in the Files folder using its internal HTML editor.

Hi @walkerjs 

I think this would be incredibly useful; although, I do find the Canvas HTML editor to be rather primitive and clumsy.

You should suggest this in Idea Conversations - the area in this community for requesting new features or improvements to existing features.

Good luck,

Kelley
