  1. Thank you!
    I have fallen vicitm to all the things Helen mentioned in this video.
    Thank you for the presentation tips and tricks.
    It is so much easier when you know what you are doing!
    I can look like a professional again.

  2. This video was *very* helpful! ~ It shed light on issues I’m having with how Immersive Reader reads image file names and images disappearing in pages that I’ve copied to new courses. Knowing how to specify the photo as a percentage so the layout looks the same regardless of the device, as well as knowing how to put text next to an image — without using a table!– will give me better looking pages with less effort. Gotta love that! Thank you so much!

    • You’re most welcome, Cindy. Canvas has updated the method for embedding images with the new Rich Content Editor which makes setting images to a percentage even easier! =-)
