The rich text editor is similar to text editors you find in Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and other word processors. It appears in various places throughout the app, but teachers will use it most when creating activities, and students will use it most when completing certain activities.
Here's a breakdown of what you can do with the rich text editor (from top, left-to-right):
- Top row
- Bold, italicize, strikethrough, and underline text.
- Apply subscript and superscript formatting.
- Choose a font.
- Choose a font size.
- Choose a font color.
- Choose font highlight color.
