Google Docs ‘Dictionary, Comments scrolling’ and more featues in new documents editor

Google added a few more features to new documents editor:

  • Dictionary: If you select a word in your doc, you can look up the definition for that word by going to Tools -> Define…

  • Special Characters: To insert characters that you can’t create with a regular keyboard, also added a special characters dialog via Insert -> Special characters…

  • Metric Units: If you’ve set your language to English US your ruler will be set in inches. But now, all other locales see the ruler with metric units. In the future, we’ll make this a preference that can be changed, no matter what language you’ve set for your account.
  • Comment Scrolling: If comments got too long, it became hard to tell which comments were associated with which text in the document. An added automatic scrolling for comments, so whenever you click in a comment it’ll scroll so that it’s directly beside the associated text.
