November D2L Update

On November 24, 2016 we will be updating to D2L version 10.6.7. This version introduces the following to D2L:

  • Brings back copy and paste from Microsoft Word

When you copy from Microsoft Word (CTRL+C) and then paste into an HTML document in D2L (CTRL+V) the following box pops up:

D2L update

To keep the formatting from Microsoft Word, click the Keep Formatting button.  Be aware, though, that often formatting from Word does not translate well into standard html.  Our initial tests, however, show that generally this feature works pretty well (copying and pasting a table, for example) but depending on what you are pasting from Word the resuting text may not be formatted exactly as it was in Word.  The alternative is to select Remove Formatting and then reformat the text in the html document you are creating within your course.

We don't anticipate any downtime for this update. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the D2L support team M-F from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at d2l@email.arizona.edu
