Google Drawing: How do I get a Google Drawing into a Google Document?

Getting a Google Drawing into a Google Document is easy, but it is not done in a traditional manner, like copy and paste.  You could download the drawing first and then re-upload it, but there is an easier and more efficient method.

  1. After you Google Drawing is completed and open, click on "Edit" and then hover your mouse over the Web clipboard option.  This will expand.  Click on the "Copy entire drawing to web clipboard.
