A text box in Google Docs not just allows you to organize your thoughts but also enhances the appeal of the document. It makes the document look more professional and amplifies the standard.
There are multiple ways of adding a text box in Google Docs. Although the process is not as simple as is the case with other word processing tools, it provides you more options with the text box. You can add text and images to a text box and place it anywhere or move it around in a document.
Inserting Text Box in Google Docs
Adding a text box in Google Docs can be a bit tricky, but it is very effective in organizing the text. We will discuss both the methods of adding a text box.
Using Drawing Tool
Place the text cursor where you want to add the text box in the document.
Now, go to ‘Insert’ in the toolbar, select ‘Drawing’ from the menu and then click on ‘New’.
A drawing window will open. Click on the ‘Text box’ icon at the top to draw a text box.
After clicking on the ‘Text box’ icon, place your cursor anywhere, and then click and drag the mouse to draw a text box.
Now, type the content in the text box, and click on ‘Save and Close’ at the top.
The text box is now added to the position where the text cursor was initially placed.
If you want to edit the content or change its font and style, click on the text box and select ‘Edit’.
Using Single Cell Table
Apart from adding a text box using drawing, you can also add a single cell table that acts as a text box.
Place the text cursor where you want to add the text box. Now, go to ‘Insert’ in the toolbar, select ‘Tables’ from the dropdown menu and then click on the first square, which denotes a single cell table.
You can start typing the content in the text box. Further, you can also resize the text box by clicking and dragging the edges in either direction. Changing the font size and style here is similar to the rest of the text in the document.
Now that you have learned how to add a text box in Google Docs, make your docs look professional by accurately organizing the content.
