Google now made typing links a little faster in Google documents. "Now when you type something that documents recognizes as a link, it'll become a link automatically. Try typing "docs.google.com", "www.google.com," or an email address to try it out," informs Google.

  • If you don't want your text to be a link, you can undo "auto-linking" by pressing Ctrl Z (Cmd Z on a Mac). And if you think you'll never want automatic link detection, you can disable it by opening Preferences dialog from the Tools menu.
  • And for those who don't like curly quotes (smart-quotes) you can now permanently disable them from same preferences dialog.

  • And, also added a few more page sizes for your documents. So if you've been craving an Executive sized page (7.25" x 10.5"), you're in luck. You can find these page options by going File > Page Setup and choosing a size from there.
