How to Insert a Text Box in Google Docs
Guess what...there's no option to insert a text box in Google Docs—BUT there is a really easy trick to insert a text box anyway! You'll never find it in Google Docs by looking for "text box," however.
Do you need a text box?
When making this guide, I came across many people asking about text boxes when what they really wanted to do was simply put text in different areas of a page in a Google Doc. That's a bit different than creating a text box. Remember that you can move text around in a Google Doc and move the cursor to different areas on a page to type text there. If you're doing something intricate with text, then you might be better off in InDesign, where you can layer text boxes for example. Whatever you're doing, be sure to track changes so if you need to backtrack, you can.
