This is a great find. It would be cool if they allowed us to edit the html once inserted. :D

This makes it possible to embed an image into a Canvas (see Document)

The image used is tagged on the internet for reuse. I just love huskies. The next line is the html tag to do this:


<img src="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8d/Siberian_Husky_heterchromia_edit.jpg" alt="" border="1" width="1000px" />

When you copy a html tag you can just use ctrl+v (windows) to paste it onto the Canvas. You'll need to ajust some attributes like the width to get the location correct. You'll find that when you close the Canvas and reopen it, the image location changes.

This doesn't work for local files on my laptop. Could it be that if you install IIS Services in Windows you can use the localhost address to use a local image in the Canvas? I'll experiment when I have some time available.

This is a great start - tables and images in canvas (together with other potential HTML goodies!)!!

Now we need tables and images (ands even HTML) for notes!
