Google Docs announced a couple features that we hope will save you time and energy. Chris Graves, Software Engineer Intern explains that;

You can now add page numbers and page count to your documents. "Just go to the Insert > Page number option to add page numbers to the header or footer of your documents.

Also, added an option to insert page count, which displays the total number of pages in your document." Graves said.

"You can combine the page number and the page count to create more advanced headers and footers," explains Gravis. For example, to create the "Page 3 of 15" header below, take the following steps:

  1. Go to Insert > Header.
  2. Click the right align icon in the toolbar to move the cursor to the upper right corner.
  3. Type the word "Page".
  4. Go to Insert > Page number > Top of page to add page numbers to the headers of your document.
  5. Type the word "of".
  6. Go to Insert > Page count to add the total number of pages to the headers of your document.

Print with Google Cloud Print in just one click
"Simply select a document from the documents list and click on Actions > Print from the bottom toolbar. Currently, you can use Cloud Print in Google documents and spreadsheets," informed Gravis.

"Google Cloud Print for mobile documents was announced on January 24 this year and is a service in Beta that allows printing from any app on any device, OS or browser without the need to install any software."

To get started, you'll need to connect your printer to Google Cloud Print. To learn more, check out Cloud Print site.
