How do I add and modify text in the New Rich Content Editor as a student?

Several features in Canvas support the New Rich Content Editor, including Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, and Quizzes.

You can type text and you can copy and paste text from other sources into the New Rich Content Editor. The New Rich Content Editor also includes several formatting tools that allow you to modify your text.

The New Rich Content editor supports keyboard shortcuts for copying and pasting text.

Copy and Paste Using a PC

  • Copy (Ctrl+C) and Paste (Ctrl+V)
  • Copy (Ctrl+C) and Paste-without-formatting (Ctrl+Shift+V)

Copy and Paste Using a Mac

Notes: 

  • The New Rich Content Editor is currently a course opt-in feature. If the Rich Content Editor in your course does not match the images in this lesson, your course is using the classic Rich Content Editor.
  • Your instructor may choose to display a different font for your course. This font will display when entering text the Rich Content Editor.
