Google has released a new feature “Drawings” in Google Docs that let you create and insert rich drawings into documents, presentations and spreadsheets to illustrate your ideas. You can now find 'Drawings' in the 'Insert' menu. The drawing is inserted as an image, but it continues to be editable after you add it to the document. Google uses SVG in Firefox, Opera, Chrome and other browsers that support it and VML in Internet Explorer, so you don't need third-party plug-ins.

Also added a new find and replace toolbar that helps you locate a word or phrase in your document, just hit Ctrl+F, or visit "Find & Replace" in the "Edit" menu. Then type the text you want to find, and click Find Next (or press Ctrl+G). Click Find Next again to select the next occurrence.

To change some or all occurrences, just type the replacement text in the second box. Click the Replace button to change a selected occurrence, or click Replace All to change all occurrences in your document in one shot.
