File link functionality - needs universal capability

    I am posting this at the request of one of my faculty members, but also on behalf of myself as an adjunct instructor.


    When adding content to a course, many objects allow for descriptive text and images (e.g., item, web link, file folder, discussion link). However, file links do not have this capability.


    The only options for a file link are to make the link name very long and descriptive and to change the color of the text.


    Developers -- When you are adding an option to one object in the LMS, please make the new option available to ALL relevant objects.
