If you would like to insert your Google Drawings into a Google Slides presentation here is how to do it.
Go to Google Drive and click on the “New” button to create a Google Drawing. You can do this for a variety of reasons. One reason is to create a graphic organizer for a background. See @MsDrasby’s guest blog post on creating math manipulatives with Google Drawing.
Publish to the Web
Use the File menu and choose “Publish to the web.”
Click the blue publish button and copy the URL.
In Google Slides use the insert image option or click on background to set the image as the background image.
The 3rd option along the top for inserting images is “By URL.” Paste the published link from Google Drawings into the “Paste and image URL here:.”
By inserting via URL, the image will update if you update the Google Drawing image.

Thank you so much for making this. It is AMAZING!!
This is one feature I have put in the feedback for Google. They really need to add a menu item to allow inserting a Google Drawing.
I tried this but when I change my Google Drawing, it doesn’t update the Google Docs file. Do I have to do something in GDocs to make it update? Thx!
They are not linked. Changes in Drawing will not reflect in Slides.
