It's easy to spruce up documents in Google Apps.  Using the insert->drawing feature you insert text boxes, shapes, callouts and word art.  Here's how.


From the Insert menu choose Drawing:



For Word Art in Google Docs:

In the Google Apps drawing window choose Actions then Word Art.



You can also insert shapes, arrows, callouts and equations in Google Docs.  For a callout, click the Shapes icon and choose callout.


You can change colors of drawings, word art and callouts.  You can also right click on a callout in Google Docs and Add or Edit Text


The finished product is a Google Doc with Awesome word Art included. Your only limit is your imagination.
