How do I set the auto-open for inline preview for files using the Rich Content Editor?
You can use the auto-open inline preview for files in the Rich Content Editor. Canvas can preview any file that is supported by the document previewer. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).
- You can have multiple files auto-open, but you have to go through the steps in this lesson every time you want to add another auto-open file preview in a feature that uses the Rich Content Editor.
- The Content Selector is currently associated with an account-level feature option that includes visual style updates and content section pagination. These changes can only currently be viewed in Pages and the Syllabus. However, the overall functionality of the Content Selector is the same. The Content Selector view available to you is determined by your institution.
