    Hi Cheryl!

    Excellent question. I think the answer here is both yes and no.

    While you cannot insert the same shape options found in a Presentation type (such as arrows or lines) you can insert symbols that are available already.

    To access this, you have to first click into a cell and then the Insert menu should open in the toolbar. From there, choose Symbol > Symbol Library:

    From here you can choose a variety of symbols to insert. You can also search for ones you are looking for. For arrow, I found these options for example:

    Outside of that, other ideas that come to mind might be inserting an emoji that might work. Inserting an emoji can be tricky but essentially if you can copy it, you can paste it in.

    I've passed this suggestion along to our Product Team as well for further review. In the meantime, let me know what questions you have. Thanks again and chat soon!

    Hi MD!

    To get the Insert menu that has the other options mentioned above, you need to double-click inside the cell itself until you see the cursor. From there you'll see the above Insert menu options.

    Let me know if I've missed the mark, or you have any questions for me. Thanks much!

    P.S. My initials are MD too. 😎

    It would also be great if we had the capability to insert shapes (including shape arrows) that can be sized. This would be helpful for long arrows spanning multiple rows.

    Hi MD!

    Great suggestion. We have a similar one here for adding shapes in Docs, and right now its listed as not planned. That could change and I'll be sure to share your request with our Product Team as well.

    Holler if you have any questions and thanks as always. Cheers!
