Email Formatting

When I send an email through Canvas Inbox I don't see any options to change font characteristics like Bold, Italics, size, etc or other formatting settings.  I only have plain text.  Is there a setting in email that gives me those options?

No, plain text is all you get with the internal Canvas messaging system.

There is a feature idea open to provide this functionality: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/1044-add-rich-content-editor-to-conversations

We should not have to request this. It is basic expectations and has been available in all email systems since the 1990s. I have the same problem with grading comments in speed grader. I give many instructions in list form and cannot put them into lists the students can follow easily. Never mind up-voting! Just do it!!

@James - oh man, a request feature as well? And they STILL haven't done it?? One of the reasons I am so far behind is the endless time I lose to not having this basic functionality.

By the way (off topic but can't resist), I LOVE the keyword grading script you/we developed for discussions! Even the highly resistant instructional techs at my institution see that it really does help with the grading!

I cannot do anything about the lack of formatting for messages.
