  2. Select New...Google Drawings. You may need to select More to see the selection. A blank, untitled canvas with a transparent background will appear.
  3. Select Untitled Drawing in the upper left corner and enter a name for your drawing.
  4. Start adding elements to your drawing using the Line, Shape, Text Box, and Image tools. Select the Select tool to manipulate elements on the canvas (e.g., drag-and-drop). The drawing will save to your Google Drive automatically as you work.
