Working with tables and formatting Google documents become easier-- as Google Docs added a cool new feature that lets you select "text with similar formatting," so you can quickly make some changes. It's like "find and replace" for formatting.

"You can now select any grid of cells in a table, which makes it much easier to make table formatting changes, like bolding just a single column. Copy-and-paste of table cells is also improved. Or if you copy multiple cells from one table to another, the copied text will be pasted without creating a table in a table," Google explains.

For example, you can copy a single word into many cells simply by highlighting those cells before you paste.

Finally, to make changes to a series of similarly formatted text (like changing every blue and underlined link) throughout your document at once, "right click on text with the formatting you want to change, choose "Select all matching text," and apply new formatting in bulk, instead of individually updating each occurrence," Google blogged.
