How do i print my instructors feedback?? When i download my paper and feedback the feedback does not appear??
When you download your instructor's comments, is it getting displayed within the browser? The browser's built-in PDF viewer doesn't have the ability to display comments. The quick fix is to open it in an external PDF viewer like Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Here are some screen shots to help illustrate what's going on. They've been trimmed so they're not the same size, but hopefully it will give you an idea.
Here's what it looks like from within Canvas.
If I click on the download button and open it with the browser (Firefox or Chrome), I get the following. Notice that drawing are there, but comments, either typed onto the document "THis is a comment" or as a sticky note "Cool beans" does not show up.
If I download the document and open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader, I get this. I added the red arrow to point something out, it's not really there.
That red arrow is pointing to a note or comment that was left about the drawing. When I mouse over that, I get to see the comment.
If I print this from Adobe Acrobat Reader, I get the drawing and the "THis is a comment" text, but I do not get the note or even the sticky note icon. Adobe has a help document Print comments | Adobe Acrobat, Reader that explains how to get these to print.
If you don't need the notes at the exact place they occur, there is an easier way. When you click print in Adobe Acrobat Reader, there is a Comments & Forms box with a Summarize Comments button. Clicking that button will create separate page(s) with your comments.
That will include the sticky notes and the text comments, but not the specific location they were on the page.
Hello there, Morgan Kelley...
As I was reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, I wanted to check in with you. I noticed that we have not heard from you since you first posted this question here in the Community on October 10, 2017 and then received a reply from James Jones a day later. Have you had an opportunity to review James' feedback? If so, has his reply helped to answer your question? Or, do you still have some questions as it relates to printing feedback? If you feel that James' response has helped to answer your question, please go ahead and mark his answer as "Correct". However, if you are still looking for some help with this question, please let us know so that Community members might be able to assist you further. For now, I'm going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because we've not heard from you since October 10th and because there hasn't been any new activity in this thread for about that same amount of time. However, that won't keep you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic. I hope that's alright with you, Morgan. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
