This post shares some tips to enhance Google drawings presentations by building dynamic and informative images in drawings and copying them over to presentation:

  • Expressing ideas using diagrams from the template gallery; Diagrams can express relationships, organizations, processes, and other ideas that're difficult to show in words.
  • Giving your text boxes some style. Drawings let you add text to pretty much any shape by double clicking on shape. type text into the box, use formatting palette to make point stand out.
  • Enhancing images to highlight a point. Using drawings, add pointers & boxes to overlay a chart, screenshot, or image in order to draw viewers eye. To do this use Insert > Image option & load image. use either arrow line or a shape to highlight point. To overlay shapes, set background color to transparent so that image below is still visible.
  • Copying drawing into a presentation. To do this, go to Web Clipboard in my drawing and select Copy entire drawing to web clipboard. Once the drawing is in my web clipboard, go to my presentation and select slide that you want to drop my drawing into. Then, click on Web Clipboard icon and select drawing from the list.
  • Once it's on slide re-size it to best fit. You can even make edits to the drawing from within the presentation, by double clicking on drawing & opening embedded drawing editor.
