Google is testing a couple of new Google Docs features: First, a font manager to help you customize the list of fonts and add new fonts from the Google Web Fonts project. "You can sort the fonts by popularity, by name or the date added and restrict the fonts to serif, sans serif, display and handwriting."

There's also a search box that lets you find a font. For example, you can use the advanced search tool from the Web Fonts project, find your favorite font, then quickly add it to the Google Docs font list.

You can try the new feature using this template. Just click "use this template" and you'll create a new document that opens in an updated version of the Google Docs editor. To access the font manager, click the font dropdown from the toolbar and select "add fonts" at the bottom of the list.

In another test feature, By just pressing Alt+/ or click the "?" icon from the toolbar - you can type a few letter from the name of a Google Docs command and select it. For example, you can type "in" and select "increase indent" or "insert row above". It's much faster than finding the command in the Google Docs menus.
