Pressbooks - Resolved Issues (UW-Madison)

Pressbooks is an innovative, open-source tool and is still emerging as an enterprise-level platform with predictable performance. As a result, the vendor and other contributors to the platform may not be able to immediately respond to performance issues that arise. Please take this into account when deciding to use Pressbooks for the creation of course and assignment materials. There may be times when Pressbooks may be unavailable and that could mean students will not be able to access materials. Learn@UW-Madison continues to track and document known issues with Pressbooks.

This document includes a list of previous issues with Pressbooks that have since been resolved.
