How do I use ScreenPal with Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides?

Google Docs, Google Slides and Google Sheets allow you to insert comments into your working project and for comments ScreenPal works great.  Quick, personalized video comments can be very effective when collaborating on a project.   If your colleague also has ScreenPal, the over over video preview makes the team even more productive.  

In Situ- Google Sheets


Although you can insert text into Google Docs and Google Slides, these text boxes use technologies that prohibit ScreenPal from working correctly.   You will not see the ScreenPal icon appear in a Google Slides or Google Docs text box as we have disabled this feature for the beta.  We are working on a solution and hope to have this capability in the future.   For Google Sheets, we have disabled ScreenPal in cells as the experience would be distracting if ScreenPal appeared in every cell you were editing.
