Google Docs is slowly, but surely adding enough options that it will eventually offer something to replicate the most of the options available in desktop word processing software. The drawing options in Google Docs recently got an upgrade. Late last week, Google announced improved drawing tools for Google Docs.
The new polyline drawing tools allow users to create multiple segment lines which can be used to create custom shapes within Google Docs. The drawings can then be shaded or filled. Users who create multiple shapes within a document can use the snap-to-guide tool to properly align their images. All of the previously available drawing tools can be used in conjunction with the polyline option to create images like the one I've inserted below.
