I am trying to insert a Word file from my computer but there is no attach tab under my assignment tab. On the informational Canvas topics it shows a tab.
Hi Eileen Ginsburg and welcome to the Canvas Community! If I understand correctly, the assignment does not have the button used to attach a file, correct? When an instructor creates an assignment, there is an option that is selected to allow file uploads. If this is not selected, the attach icon is not visible. You might contact your course instructor and let him/her know the difficulty you are experiencing. You could also submit a help ticket with Canvas Support and see if they can verify that this is the issue, or if something else is happening. Another thing you could try is checking with a couple of different web browsers (Chrome and FireFox for example). Sometimes an issue with one browser disappears on another.
I hope this helps and good luck!
