Google Docs, which is Google’s office suite that includes “web-based text editor, spreadsheets and presentations” has under gone updation.  The newly released revamped version for the toolbars of Google Documents and Presentations, removed some essential buttons - “copy, paste, and cut”, and added buttons for “printing and saving”.

The Google document editor toolbar is one of the most heavily changed parts of the interface. I’m happy Google made some of the buttons easier to recognize. For instance, in the old interface differentiating between the font size vs font family picker always took an extra second or so; same for the font color vs font background color tools, which were easy to confuse.

Also, the document editor save button now moved to the toolbar, with a more traditional disk item. The spellcheck button is now also in the toolbar, moved from its previous position in the bottom right of the editor. The “Also editing now” message – in case there is someone editing along with you when you open the document – moved a bit to the right. Printing is now also available as button, meaning you can print from the file menu, by pressing the button, or by clicking the Print link on top... a little too much, I think. [Google Blogoscoped]
