|05/14/2014 - 12:00||Mail is not filtered by course||
D2L's mail system does not know what course you sent your mail from so there is no current way to filter your messages by course.
The instructor could tag his messages by including a searchable keyword that would be unique to the course.
|05/06/2014 - 13:45||Can't view multiple pages of drop box submissions for some students||
When viewing X students' document, she can preview the entire document, without viewing as text or downloading it. When viewing Y's document you can only preview the first page, and has to either view as text or download it,
Using the "view as text" button within the document viewer to avoid having to download the file in order to view it -- formatting won't be maintained, so this might not be a suitable workaround for all situations.
|02/13/2014 - 15:30||HTML editor crashes Internet Explorer 9||
Internet Explorer 9 crashes in various areas of D2L. We have tickets where it's crashed running Spell Checker and when viewing source code.
Behavior was not duplicated in Internet Explorer 10 or FireFox.
|02/12/2014 - 10:45||Spell Checker freezes in D2L when using Chrome 32||
When using the spell checker, either when adding content or creating messages, the box that normally pops up that should display errors instead loads as a white screen. The browser then freezes and you have to close the entire browser and restart, thus losing whatever content she was working on in D2L.
Change the settings in Chrome. Chrome menu -> Settings -> Show Advanced Settings... -> Languages -> Language and input settings...->
Select the spell-checker settings to English (United States)
