How do I disable inline previews for files using the Rich Content Editor?
You can disable inline previews for files in the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).
Note: In Pages and the Syllabus, the Content Selector sidebar includes visual style updates and content section pagination. However, the overall functionality of the Content Selector throughout Canvas is the same.
