Google Docs is without a doubt, not the first thing that crosses your mind when it comes to drawing. The Microsoft Paint will probably be a lot more realistic to use. But did you know that Google Docs has a dedicated menu to let you draw something?

This drawing ability serves some purposes. Users can create custom illustrations, curved lines, shapes, doodles, and a handwritten signature (with the help of a stylus, of course).

With a bit of creativity, the Drawing tool could be a useful feature to improve the overall look of the document. To draw on Google Docs, check out the following guide.

1. Launch a Google Docs document. The place where you put the cursor is where the later drawing will be inserted.
