I take most of my notes on a computer, however drawings are frequently very useful in scientific notes.
Instead of juggling between two applications (microsoft paint and microsoft word) these two methods shows how to draw directly in word. This is easier and more organized than having paint and word open at the same time and switching between programs with cut and paste commands.
These drawings can also be later modified in word by double clicking on them and redrawing.
method 1 = steps 1-4
method 2 = steps 5-6
Step 1: Open MS Word
open MS word, click 'insert', then go down to 'object'
