Canvas Teacher for iPad: "Done" in comment pane should warn if text field contains unsaved text

Canvas Teacher for iPad: "Done" in comment pane should warn if text field contains unsaved text

On the computer version, adding comments to a pin is straightforward.  You write the comment, type return, Grading on my iPad for the first time, I used the "pin" annotation, wrote my comment in the comment pane for each pin, clicked on the big "Done" at the top of the commenting pane — and then moved on.  Because I did not know that one needed to manually save the text first by clicking on the up-arrow button (which was not even obviously a button), every comment was lost.  I only learned about this when students told me,

Minimally there should be a warning when clicking "Done" and the text field contains unsaved material.
