Introduction to Google Docs Drawing

One of the more obscure parts of Google Docs is the drawing tool. This tool is best used for more intricate charts and diagrams that would be very difficult to create and work with in a document. Concept maps, organizational charts, and food webs are some examples of illustrations that would be best created in the drawing tool. Here's a quick overview on the features of Google Docs Drawing.


  1. I'm a sophomore in high school and am very interested in architecture. A few people I know including people in architecture programs in school, and my uncle who is in the building business, have suggest that I play around with CADs. I've been using GoogleSketch, but I want to use a more professional program. What program would you suggest that is relatively easy to learn and understand?.

  2. Thanks for visiting!

    I wouldn't count SketchUp out! A friend of mine is an architect and uses SketchUp regularly in a professional capacity. It will be important for you to use other CAD programs, but they are very costly. SketchUp is a great way to get started and learn some of the basics.
