Google Docs: Google drawings “Zoom tools, Pie and arc drawing, Duplicate objects” features improved

Google drawings received some more features and shortcuts to help you refine your drawings:

  • Zoom improvements like: zoom tool on the toolbar; ability to draw a rectangle around an area to zoom; zoom levels to View menu; and keyboard shortcuts to zoom in (Ctrl Shift ? or Cmd Shift ? on a Mac) and zoom out (Ctrl Shift ? or Cmd Shift ? on a Mac).
  • Pie and arc drawing improvements now lets you “drag from the center point, then release to set radius, move your mouse along the circumference to set angle, then click when you’re done. Hint – you can hold shift during step 2 to constrain your arc to 15 degree increments. You can also select Edit > Change Shape to toggle between a pie shape and arc shape
  • Duplicate while rotating and resizing is now extended beyond “holding Control (or Command on Mac) to make a copy of an object as you drag it,” to duplicate objects while you resize & rotate, which makes it easy to make both concentric and radial diagrams. Hint: duplicating while resizing works better if you resize from large to small, since each new object gets placed on top
  • New line decoration controls lets you change the style of the cap used at the end of your lines from the default butt cap to use square caps or round caps
  • You can also change the appearance of line joins within your polylines and shapes from the default round join to use miter joins or bevel joins. These options are available via Format > Line decorations
