Hi  @beers_christoph ...

If you are only being allowed to submit an assignment to your instructor via "text entry" and not any kind of file attachment, it sounds like your instructor has not set up the assignment correctly on his/her end.  When you submit a file attachment as part of your assignment, you should see something similar to what is outlined in this Guide: How do I submit an online assignment? (see the section on "Submit a File Upload").  But, it sounds like you are only seeing the "Text Entry" tab (as shown in this Guide: How do I submit a text entry assignment?).  From an instructor's point of view, when he/she is setting the details of any given assignment in Canvas, he/she needs to make sure that the "File Uploads" option is checked when deciding on the "Submission Type" (see the section on "Select Online Entry Options" in this Guide: How do I create an online assignment?.)  If this seems to be the case, I would recommend that you reach out to your instructor to see if he/she has the correct settings set for this particular assignment.  You can contact your instructor directly via the Canvas "Help" menu and then selecting "Ask Your Instructor a Question" as described in this Guide: How do I get help with Canvas as a student? (See the section on "View Default Links").

I hope this information is helpful to you, Christopher!
