Adding Content to a Google Doc

When working on a document, there will usually be a point where you want to copy and paste some text, images or content into your document from another source.

Did you know that in Google Docs, instead of copying and pasting, you can drag and drop any Google Keep notes into your document? It’s really quick, simple and easy!

Drag and Drop from Keep to Docs

With a Google Doc open in a browser, notice that there is a sidebar on the right-hand side of the screen that shows various icons.
