Edit window on Class Pages

The edit window size is entirely too small. When you open the second toolbar, you have very little of your text visible to easily work with. The edit window should be resizable and it should pop back to where you set it.

    Hey Folks -

    Thanks for your feedback on this! Creating a more consistent and usable UX experience is something that we always try to keep top of mind while designing new screens to implement in the system.

    Thank you, Brian, for putting this list of potential enhancements in the comments. This kind of feedback is incredibly helpful and I appreciate you putting in the time to write this up. We'll be discussing this internally to see what fields we can/cannot adjust. While I can't promise we'll be able to bring all of these updates to fruition in one swoop, I can say that we'll investigate and we'll see what can be done.

    We know that a usable, consistent system is something that you all need in order to effectively do your jobs and that is something we'll continue to deliver on as we make further iterations to the LMS!

    If anyone would like to discuss the LMS as a whole or anything inconsistent fields, feel free to reach out to me at michael.morrissette@blackbaud.com

    This issue is one of several in a lengthy discussion in the Community. One of the responses was from Jacqueline Koca, who suggested that we post a list of edit dialogs that need work.

    Resizing text boxes could be done by:

    • adding an expansion handle in the lower right corner (as in the Conduct > Add infraction dialog)

    • adding an embiggen button in the menu bar (similar to the Source Code button in the menu bar of the Bulletin Board text block editor)

    • making the entire edit dialog responsive so that it is allowed to fill the available screen space
