Compose message math

All my classes are math classes, so when I message my instructor, I need to be able to type math. I can do this in some places within canvas - there is an "equation" drop down and it lets you script math equations.

However I cannot script math when messaging professors. Why? How Can I fix this so that I can script math in my message to my professors?


If there is not a way to do this, then this is a serious flaw in canvas that needs to be addressed.


Thank you.

@JohnBridgeman -

You are correct in your assessment - there is no way to do what you want in the inbox/messaging construct of Canvas.  I believe that there are several people that have asked for this capability(or other capabilities within the message editor ).

here is the idea conversation about an RCE for messages started in 2015 - upvote it if you can.
