Here's a way to merge that works pretty well for all but the most complex tables. Start with your two tables. Add a new blank row to the first table. Select the entire second table and copy it (Ctrl+C). Put your cursor back into the first cell of the blank row you created, then paste (Ctrl+V). Then just delete the second table. ...

I've found out that copying pastes from Pastebin works perfectly, and as an added bonus it adds line numbers that are recognized by Google Docs as numbered list. You go to Pastebin, create an unlisted paste (if you don't want anyone else to see it), select syntax highlighting from large number of available languages and syntaxes, hit Submit, then select and ...

You can use Yet Another Mail Merge to produce what appears to be line breaks by breaking up the message content into different columns. Wherever you need to see a line break, insert a column with a Break # header. The cells below the header in that column should be blank. In Google Sheets for instance, your columns might end up looking like this: Email ...

OP has not responded to a request for clarification, but I suspect for most people a page break immediately before the title at the top of page 2 would be adequate.

I'd say it highly depends om how the document is actually stored by Google and is subject to change between the releases of the backend and frontend. I guess (out of my developmemt experience) that images are kept in something like a hash table where index order is not really well defined and can change based on the inner workings of the data structure ...

There is a solution to this problem! I will do my best to give the line by line instructions, here, but you must be sure to have the "formula bar" showing, or unhidden in Google Spreadsheet. The first part is standard, and you probably already know how to do this: Enter text in the cell Highlight that cell, and click the "Insert/Link" menu option Type ...

Yes. There are keyboard shortcuts in Windows at least (in Chrome using Google Docs)

The short answer is: yes. Hurray! The medium-length answer is: yes, if have mad skillz. Aww, shucks. A more full answer Through Google Apps Script, Google Docs is amazingly extensible. The lynchpin function you are seeking is aptly named addBookmark() (class description here). The function requires a passed value, however, and that is what will require ...

Yes you can, but I don't know how to do it, at least not directly. However, it is possible. If you copy in text that's already small caps (e.g. from wikipedia), Docs will preserve the setting. You can then set one of the styles (e.g. Heading n) to this copied text and use it to format other bits of your document as needed. Changing the font, size, and ...

I suppose your documents holds data that you do not want to share. So I would : add a sheet "public" in which I would copy/paste the data use the built-in "publish for the web" functionality in the "publish" dialog, limit the publication to the "public" worksheet Note that, instead of copy/paste (annoying if the data changes frequently) you can use the ...

With this little script you can change the headings automatically. Especially useful when the different headings are convoluted. Code function changeHeading() { var pars = DocumentApp.getActiveDocument().getBody().getParagraphs(); for(var i in pars) { var p = pars[i], h = p.getHeading(), d = DocumentApp.ParagraphHeading; switch(h) { ...

After a couple of days of more 'normal' activity levels no better offer yet so I suggest: Change "Heading 2" to the required style and then "Update 'Heading 2' to match. This does not add or subtract from the Heading reference number but at least allows easy propagation across the 100 headings to be changed, by altering one only.

I solved a similar problem by using the google visualizations api to query data in a publically shared google sheet and draw a chart from the data. Outputting just the table of data should be that much easier.
