    Add the Rich Text Editor to the Comments section of Speedgrader.


    "I want to recommend books, etc., or to properly format foreign words, and so on, and want to set the example, of course, of doing so properly.  Thank you"


    "Instructors have told me they'd like formatting (bold, italic, colors) in the comment boxes in order to emphasize a statement without typing all caps (which seems like they're yelling at the students)."


    "As an instructor in a virtual classroom I need to be able to make my communication with students richer to better get my points across.  Add rich text capabilities and allow me to make the Comment boxes larger while you are at it."

    August 5 Update from Christi Wruck

    Hey Guys, I'm sorry to say that this feature isn't possible with our current architecture. We know there is a desire to have RCE in many places in Canvas and will always try to find ways to add it. Hopefully, in the future, we'll be able to accommodate this request!
