The editor in Canvas (formally known as the Rich Content Editor or RCE) is the toolbar and list of menus seen across the top of any editable space inside of Canvas. It is used primarily to format text, place images, and insert videos.
On Dec 12, 2020 this editor will receive an update that will change the way it looks, and provide a few additional features.
