Does Canvas accommodate italicized answers for matching questions?

Jump to solution

I teach a college English course in which matching questions on tests are common, questions in which students, for instance, must match themes or characters or quotations with the titles of the novels they're identified with. I imagine that professors teaching courses in a variety of other fields—history, foreign language, political science, music theory, etc.—also have cause to devise matching questions whose answers would likewise require italics for titles of books, musical compositions, works of art, etc.

This is my first year using Canvas. I've searched for an answer to this question, both within the Canvas community and in the broader Google database, and have discovered only that 5 years ago somebody was thinking about recommending italics as an enhancement for the answers of matching questions. Any update?
