Reduce the real estate that the itslearning tab bars use up

When opening an embedded resource in itslearning, the itslearning tab bars and frame take up a lot of screen space that make viewing the live embed difficult, even useless. If there were a way to collapse the space of the frame and tab bars, so that more space could be used for viewing embedded websites, pdfs, etc., this feature would be infinitely more useable.

    Hi Timothy,

    Agree :-) The embedded content deserve more space. I’ve asked our UX team to look into it, but I can’t promise if and when it’s possible to make any change.

    How do you picture the best solution? A full screen feature? Or an optimization of todays UI?

    Update: 16/11-16

    Hi again,

    I’ll follow this up with our UX-team and see what we can do. Thanks again for caring enough to post this idea :-) 

    We'll add more space for file preview when we're making enhancements to the resource page. Can't promise when, but we'll see 2017 before we can begin.   

    Best regards

    One problem where this manifests is when opening MS Office docuemnts added as Files - the area avaiable to read the file is very small, meaning it is almost always necessary to downlaod the file to open it locally, rather than within It's Learning, which really makes opening the files in Office inside the system pointless.

    I think just a revision of todays UI as if you can get rid of the breadcrumb and then put the options such as Downloads and Properties on the same line as the element title then you will free-up a good bit of space ;-)

    I would say that either solution would be an improvement. I think that the grey space below the menu bars could definitely be optimized generally. The ability to also hide the menu bars on demand would be an additionally nice feature.
