What You Will Need
Before we begin, ensure that you have the following:

Customizing the Pen’s Functionality
You can customize the pen’s buttons by launching the XP Pen’s control panel. Here, you can assign different functions to the pen’s buttons, such as right-click, left-click, eraser, etc. This can greatly enhance your drawing and writing experience on Google Slides.
How to Use XP Pen on Google Slides
Step 1: Open Google Slides
Open Google Slides on your web browser and log into your Google account. Create a new presentation or open an existing one where you wish to use your XP Pen.
Step 2: Select the Scribble Tool
On the toolbar at the top, click on the Line tool. A drop-down menu will appear. From this menu, select the Scribble tool. This tool allows you to draw freehand on your slides, ideal for the use of a graphics tablet.
Step 3: Draw with Your XP Pen
Now, simply use your XP Pen just like you would use a regular pen on paper. You can change your pen’s color and thickness by selecting the Pen tool on the toolbar.
Step 4: Edit Your Drawings
If you need to change anything, just click on your drawing. You can then move it, resize it, or delete it. If you have assigned the Eraser function to one of your pen’s buttons, you can also easily erase parts of your drawing.
Using an XP Pen on Google Slides is a great way to make your presentations more engaging and interactive. With a little practice, you’ll be able to create amazing slide presentations. Happy drawing!
