What is the Content Selector in the Rich Content Editor?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

The Content Selector is displayed in the sidebar whenever the Rich Content Editor is opened.
