How do I add and modify text in the Rich Content Editor as an instructor?

The Rich Content Editor will be discontinued in a future release. You can enable the New Rich Content Editor feature in course feature options.

Several features in Canvas support a Rich Content Editor, including Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, and Syllabus. You can type text and you can copy and paste text from other sources into the Rich Content Editor. The following keyboard shortcuts can be used when copying and pasting text:

  • Normal copy and paste on a PC: Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V
  • Copy and paste-without-formatting on a PC: Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Shift+V
  • Normal copy and paste on a Mac: Command+C, Command+V

The Rich Content Editor also includes several formatting tools that allow you to modify your text.
