my student is using the online version of Mathematica for my class; it appears to not have a palette feature for typing formatted input? This was kind of shocking to me; why wouldn't there be a palette? Surely, I'm just missing something.

Is anyone familiar with Mathematica online, who knows how to use palettes there? How is it accessed?

At least as of 2017-07-14: 2d input in uploaded notebooks is blocked from editing, it doesn't have 2d input pallettes, and the keyboard shortcuts for 2d input are disabled.
