How To Create a Textbox in Google Docs

A teacher asked me recently how to create a textbox in Google Docs. I didn't see a textbox option in the Docs toolbar, so I cheated and looked it up! :) I thought you also might like to know how to insert a textbox.

1. While in your Google doc, click Insert > Drawing. (Yes, you go to Drawing to get a textbox!)

2. Click the textbox icon. Your cursor will turn into a crosshair. Click below the Drawing toolbar and drag to draw your textbox.

3. Type your information in the new textbox. While the textbox is selected, use the menu options to format the text and the box. Drag by the little blue boxes in the perimeter to resize.

4. Click Save and Close. The textbox will be inserted into your Google doc.

5. To move your textbox around in your document, click on it and choose the "wrap text"  option.
