Google Drawings

If you are comfortable Microsoft Office user, you are probably comfortable with the drawing contextual tab.  It appears easy to use, you can create dynamic illustrations, but what about Google?  Google's answer is Google Drawings.  It contains similar tools to Microsoft's drawing tab.

In Google Drawings you can create in realtime and collaborate with others. You can insert shapes, images, text, arrows, scribbles and lines, tables and even WordArt.  The WordArt tool isn't as advanced as Microsoft Office, but you can accomplish a nice look through the large variety of fonts available through Google.  You can arrange and group your drawings as well.  

To create a Google Drawing, go to Google Drive, select New, select More and select Google Drawings.
From here a drawing will open and you can create a diagram, a table, paint and image or create a flow chart. 

To insert your drawing into a Google Doc, select Edit, choose Web Clipboard and select Copy Entire Drawing to Web Clipboard.  This will allow you to insert the Google Drawing onto other Google Drive applications.
To insert your drawing, go to Google Docs, click on Edit, choose Web Clipboard and click on the Drawing Name.  Take a chance, create a Google Drawing and remember...Keep Calm, Click Undo!
