LOL at the Writely! text :D

Good fins Tony! It should be a handy feature for a lot of people, mostly those with wacoms

The only downfall is that it's not as sensitive to the pen.

Very nice. Every week I need my desktop applications less and less. This will be great for flowcharts.

Above 5 comments were made in the forum before this was blogged,

I've had no luck sending a Google Doc with a drawing that still includes the drawing once exported as a .doc or PDF. Anyone else seeing this?

[put at-character here]TonyB:

Yes, I tried it twice, I just get a blank page.

Do they test these things at all?

It doesn't print images or show in Print Preview either. I'm often surprised they release new features like this that clearly have broken functionality. I can understand they sometimes want to get something out early to get feedback and ideas – which is fine – but why put it out there when you KNOW something is broken? They should fix known issues first, then release it and get user feedback about enhancements, changes, etc.
