Canvas Teacher App Pen

Jump to solution

Does anyone know if you can change the default color of the pen in the Canvas Teacher App.  It always comes up red and I would like to change it to black so that I am not going through that extra click when trying to annotate piles of student work.  Thanks!

Hi belinda.stutzman@wayzata.k12.mn.us‌, 

There is currently no way to change the default color of any of the annotation tools. The only thing even close is if you set a color and then slide from student to student, it "should" remember your last color until you hit "done" and end your grading session. 

I suggest you consider creating a feature idea to bring more visibility to this feature:

Hope this helps - Ryan

It's truly insane that this feature is omitted.  Really basic element of being instructor friendly.  When I go through 60 multi file assignments I end up with an average of 240 superfluous clicks during the marking session.
