I love the new Canvas tool, but it's missing a few features. 

1. It seems to be primarily geared towards canvasing or visually analyzing Bible text. There is an "Insert Passage" function, but no similar function for any other book. It would be nice to see this expanded to any monograph/journal/etc. 

There is a work-around: open text box on Canvas and paste in your text, but then you have to mess around in the Text panel to get it to format similar to the way the Bible text is formatted from the Insert Passage function. 

2. Along these lines, it would be nice to be able to simply drag and drop text into the Canvas. Currently, I this isn't even possible with Bible text, which is a bit surprising. It would make the sort of workflow pictured below a lot more convenient.

3. While points one and two are issues of convenience, I consider the following a more important feature: allow us to "tie" or attach a canvas to a piece of text, the same way that a note file or a highlight is tied/attached to a text.

4. Finally, a more ambitious request: allow the canvas to accept pen input from devices like iPad or Surface.

EDIT:

5. A further point I just noticed. The arrows run into or but up against the text in some cases. For aesthetics and ease-of-reading there should be a gap. (cf. the portion circled in red below)

Me too!

That could be interesting, although I don't know what the copyright implications could be.

I really like this idea! Similar to the Media visual filter.

Yes, some consistency here would help those of us with OCD tendencies.

While I can get the Greek text into Canvass, I can't get any of my Hebrew bibles to put text in there. That would be extremely disappointing. Hopefully I'm doing something wrong or they plan to implement this soon.
