How to Add Text


The Blackboard text editor works just like a word processor such as Microsoft Word or Pages for Mac.

You can type directly into the text editor or use your keyboard to copy and paste text from another source.

How to Copy and Paste Using Your Keyboard

  • Windows: Ctrl + A to select all the text, Ctrl + C to copy, and Ctrl + V to paste.
  • Mac: Command + A to select all the text, Command + C to copy, and Command + V to paste.
