The RCE tools work with the following:

  • Pages
  • Assignments
  • Course announcements
  • Course syllabus
  • The description portion of discussions
  • The description portion of classic quizzes


They do not work with:

  • Events
  • Account-level announcements
  • Portfolios
  • Quiz questions
  • Discussion responses
  • New Quizzes
  • Assignment submissions


A general rule of thumb is if there are multiple RCE boxes on a page, the rich content editor tools will not work. When there are multiple versions of the rich content editor on a page, it is difficult for the tools to keep track of the editor in which a user is currently typing.
