SpeedGrader – Additional Quick Links
SpeedGrader quick links are now available to select from the options menus for Assignments, Graded Discussions, Classic Quizzes, and New Quizzes in their respective tool list and for links to these items in Modules. Links have also been added to options menus while editing for some items.

Please refer to the release notes to determine how to access all new SpeedGrader access links for each tool.

Rich Content Editor – Drag and Drop or Paste Multiple Files (May 10 deploy)
As an improvement to the March 1 feature release of drag and drop and pasting file functionality,  users can now drag and drop or paste multiple files in the rich content editor to quickly and efficiently add files.

Assignments – Green Publish Icon Color Update  (April 26 deploy)
The publish status icon for an assignment, discussion, or quiz is now a muted green color to visibly indicate students have submitted work and the assignment cannot be unpublished.

Rich Content Editor – Expanding Toolbar (April 26 deploy)
The Rich Content Editor toolbar now slides to expand when using the “More Options” button in a narrow browser window replacing the temporary floating toolbar previously displayed.  This update keeps the expanded view visible throughout the session and  improves the ease of use and accessibility of the toolbar.
