Google recently released a preview of new document editor that supports a brand new ruler, alignment features, per-paragraph line spacing and more. “You’ll also notice a huge improvement in import quality when uploading & importing documents from desktop word processors into Google Docs. And for an extend collaboration capabilities in documents – added a sidebar that lets you see who else is editing at the same time, and, if you click sidebar, you can chat with collaborators right next to the document. And when other editors type, you can now see their edits as they happen character-by-character. You’ll notice that some features, like drawings, web clipboard, and table of contents, aren’t in the new editor yet – will be adding soon,” explain Google. To try out new editor, visit Editing tab in Google docs list settings. Check the box next next to “New version of Google documents,” and all new and uploaded documents will be created in new editor.
