How to add text boxes in Google Docs

Adding a text box to a document is a great way to highlight relevant information, such as an important statement, and be able to move them easily wherever we want in the file. Google Docs does not have an obvious path, so here’s how to add a text box to a Big G text editor file.

To add the text box, you must first open the Drawing Tool – is not something that comes to mind when the text you want to add, right? But breathe and keep going.

In your document, open the “Insert” menu and then choose the “Drawing” command.

Now, click and drag the mouse to create a text box in the space provided, and then add the desired text.

After you create a text box and add some text, you can customize it to your liking using the toolbar. Click the three dots to reveal the extended text toolbar.

This allows you to change the background, border, and font color, as well as apply other formatting options, such as bold, italic, bookmarks, and so on.

When the text box is the way you want it, click “Save and close” to add it to the document.

Now you can move the text box to the position you want. If you need to make any changes, double-click it to display the drawing tools again. Alternatively, you can click on the space in question and click on “Edit”.

Although this method is not the most direct way to add a text box to a document, it is still very easy to insert and manipulate text highlights anywhere in your file.
