Inserting a Movable Google Doc Text Box

Last week this question was asked by a Google Doc User in the Google Doc Help Forum. This is when I discovered the easiest way to add a movable text box in a Google Doc is by inserting a Google Drawing. This will allow you to insert text which may be easily dragged around a Google Doc once the Text Break and “0” Margins are selected. Please check out the following easy steps to success for adding a draggable text box into a Google Doc.

ADDING DRAGGABLE TEXT BOX

  1. Open a Google Doc
  2. In Tool Bar Click Insert, followed by Selecting Drawing
  3. A Pop Up Window Opens
  4. Select the Text Box Tool from Tool Bar
  5. Drag Text Box to Size
  6. Click More in the Tool Bar
    • This allows you to select text style
  7. Type Words into the Text Box
  8. Size the Text Box (Close to the Text’s outer perimeter)
  9. Click Save & Close Button
  10. Under Text Box Click  “Wrap Text” or “Break Test” and a “0 inch” Margin
    • This will allow you to move the text box around depending upon the layout
