How do I style text content in the Rich Content Editor?
You can use the Rich Text Editor to change font size and format paragraphs.
The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).
Open the Rich Content Editor
Open the Rich Content Editor using one of the Canvas features which support the Editor.
Select the text you wish to style.
Use Font Size Drop-down Menu
Select the Font Size drop-down menu to change the text font size. Here you can choose from 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, 24, or 36 sized fonts.
Use the Paragraph Drop-down Menu
Select the Paragraph drop-down menu to change the text font size. Here you can choose from paragraph, heading 2, heading 3, or heading 4 styles.
Single Space Text
To create single spacing in the Rich Content Editor, press the option key, shift key, and then return (MAC) or enter (PC). This will create a line break instead of a paragraph break.
Superscript and Subscript Text
Use the superscript and subscript options in the Rich Content Editor.
Click the Save button.
Note: When using the Rich Content Editor in Assignments, Discussions, Pages, and Quizzes, you have the option to Save & Publish. When using the Rich Content Editor in the Syllabus and Discussions pages, the Save button may appear as “Update Syllabus” or “Post Reply”.
