Case Scenario Critical Reader - Authoring - Formatting Text (UW-Madison)

Please refrain from developing new CSCR modules. UW-Madison is moving to the Canvas LMS. While CSCR modules can be loaded into Canvas courses, they cannot be connected to the Canvas gradebook. A team from the Teaching and Learning Technology Advisory Group (TLTAG) created a recommendation for alternate tools that you can see here. Members of the transition team would like to meet with you to help you select the solution(s) that best meets your needs to move your content. Please let us know when we can best assist you by completing this form or contact the designated instructional technologist for your school or college.

Home > Authoring > Formatting Text

Text can be edited by selecting options in the edit bar for:

  • bold
  • italics
  • underline
  • strikethrough

There are options for justification (left, center, right, full) and bulleted or numbered lists.

There are also options for text and highlight color. Colors can be chosen by clicking the box and choosing a color from the palette that appears.

To remove formatting from text, highlight the desired text and click the X button at the far end of the edit bar.

The "Make Text" drop down menu (found in the edit bar) is for:

  • creating a scroll box within which you can place lengthy text selections that otherwise would occupy too much space on the page
  • changing the direction of text, making it read left-to-right or right-to-left
  • changing font size or making a header

To perform these edits, first select the text and then click the proper button on the edit bar or choose the proper option in the "Make Text" drop down menu.


Note: Bullets need to be removed with the same button they were added. Highlight the text or image with bullet point and then press the bulleted list button.
