Why is it that half of my student submissions in Doc Viewer have the annotation tool and some don't? How do I bring back those tools?
It seems like several things impact the presence or absence of the annotation tools.
This thread indicates that being an observer as well as a teacher can break the annotation functionality.
This thread indicates that discussion attachments do not have annotation tools available.
Other possibilities are covered in the How do I add annotated comments in student submissions using DocViewer in SpeedGrader? document.
Do any of these scenarios apply?
Hi Lori Campbell,
Unfortunately, you're not the only one who's reported this.
Speedgrader Tools not showing
Annotations ToolBar suddenly not appearing in SpeedGrader
Annotation tools not available in SpeedGrader
Are any of the comments in these threads helpful? I'd recommend submitting a ticket to Canvas Support (How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor?)
Hello there, Lori Campbell...
I have been reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question. I wanted to check in with you because I noticed that there hasn't been any new activity in this topic since March 23, 2018. Have you had a chance to review the links that Kristin Lundstrum also provided on the 23rd? Did any of those resources help to answer your question? Or, are you still looking for some help with this question? If you feel that Kristin or Tracey DeLillo has helped to answer your question, please feel free to mark one of their responses as "Correct". However, if you are still looking for some assistance from members of the Community, please come back to this posting to provide us with an update so that someone might be able to help you. For now, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because there hasn't been any new activity in this topic for over four months. However, that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic. I hope that's alright with you, Lori. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
