      Description

      If an Instructor tries to add files from Resources through the CKEditor, they have no way of knowing if these files are hidden. This is especially problematic because when the Instructor looks at the "Student View" preview they are able to see files their students are not actually able to see.

      To fix this, at the very least the Student View should be updated to take into account whether the student is actually able to see a hidden file. The Instructor should also receive a warning when using a hidden file that Students will be unable to view this file. 

      Note: There is a different issue when uploading files as attachments, which is almost the reverse of this issue. There, the file location is shown in gray, to communicate that it is hidden, but if the instructor still attaches the file students are able to view it.
