Toolbar menus are grouped by common icons and interactions
The content sidebar only displays when linking to other parts of Canvas, accessing Canvas files, or accessing uploaded media
Image and media additions include drag and drop; images include an Unsplash search and content auto-scaling
When content in a browser window is long enough to require a scroll bar, the Rich Content Editor menu bar is fixed at the top of the browser window. Users can scroll the length of the browser page and manage content in the Rich Content Editor without having to scroll back up the page to access the menu.
The Keyboard shortcut, Accessibility Checker, and HTML Editor icons have moved to the bottom of the editor next to the word count. Additionally, the Rich Content Editor window can be resized using the Move handle below the window, and the window can be expanded to full screen.
