One of the most overlooked Google Doc applications is Google Drawings. The main reason for this is that Google Drawings is not readily available in the listing of the other Google Docs (like Docs, Sheets and Slides). What I am finding is that Google Drawings is a powerful (easy to use) graphic designer that can be used for multi-purposes (i.e. blog postings, signs, cards, facebook posts, flowcharts, organizational charts, website wireframes, mind maps, etc…).
As I mentioned, it is not easy to find or get to. Below is step-by-step on how to get to Google Drawings. Once you are there, bookmark it in your web browser. You can also get to it, if you are a Google Chrome browser user, by going to the Google Chrome Store and downloading the Google Drawings app [here].
- On your computer, go to Google Drive.
- In the top left, click New More Google Drawings.
- Insert shapes, lines or text with the editing tools.
- When you’re finished, you can add your drawing to another file.
