Our institution is not using the New Rich Content Editor. What will happen to content pages we've created with the version when we switch to the new? Will the pages lose their formatting?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for your quick reply! Should I be asking my administrator to enable the New Rich Content Editor?
@mliebman , if it were me, I would ask for it, at least to try it out, as it is currently slated to be the default RCE by the end of this year. Your admin can set it to "Allow" at the account level, which gives individual instructors the option to toggle it on or back off in their own courses.
Hi @Stefanie !
I am having a lot of difficulties with the new rce. I have taught hundreds of faculty to use Canvas, but I cannot even figure out things that used to be so simple. I have spent the last 40 minutes trying to link images and text to a module. I have read the Canvas guides that I found, but they make little sense. I am sorry that I am venting, it is just so frustrating and maddening. And, I am supposed to train faculty on this new rce.
Are there some videos about linking things? or even better, scrap this new rce (sorry, venting again)
I am preparing our staff for the issues I think people will have. Linking is one of those. I think the key process to remember is the following: (1) Click the Link icon to open the dialog box to create external link. (2) Click the arrow next to the link icon to find a course link. (3) This will also be the case for Pictures, Media, and Documents. The other issue I am finding with link functionality is when you select a link to change the link, you have to go back to the menu to break the link before you can see course links in the menu again.
