Instead of leaving comments directly on Canvas, an instructor may choose to include comments directly in the assignment using annotations, or inline comments. It is possible to view comments online using View Feedback or offline by downloading the assignment.
When you download the annotated PDF, you must use a PDF viewing program installed on your computer, such as Preview (mac), Adobe Acrobat DC, Foxit Reader or some other PDF reader software.
