Copy and Paste Issues and Workarounds


The end result of copying and pasting to Canvas text message box looks like a combination of mixed letters with special characters. In other words, the format has altered.

For example, copying from Microsoft Word and then pasting into Canvas does not always maintain the intended formatting. Once submitted, you may notice that your post erroneously displays special characters, or has spacing and paragraph alignment issues. This is due to the limitations of the Content Editor within Canvas.
