||Hiding the Lessons Banner
You can now opt to hide the big blue banner at the top of a lesson and/or the footer links and text at the bottom a lesson. Hiding the banner and footer can be especially useful when you are embedding a lesson in another page, for instance, the web content tool at a CTools site or a mixed media section of a Sitemaker site.
Hiding the big blue banner can also allow you a little flexibility in regards to branding. You can display a project logo by uploading a jpg or gif as a Resource and attaching it to a blank Note on the top of each display page.
These Appearance settings are now available as lesson Settings.
