Removing preview/video icons

Discussion created by Loren Barnhurst on Sep 23, 2019

I've found bits and pieces scattered around, and maybe everyone already knows this, but when I am linking files (from within Canvas), irritating icons appear next to my links and/or large icons (for videos) present themselves.  I wanted them all gone so I could have a cleaner and less bulky appearance.

 

My method for removing either irritant:

 

For files (like .pdf)  Replace "instructure_file_link instructure_scribd_file" in the html with the simple "inline=disabled".  

 

For videos (like .mp4)  Replace "instructure_file_link instructure_video_link" in the html with the same "inline=disabled".  

 

Hope that works for your needs.
