Mac Yosemite answer: Open a word processing program that will enable pasting as text only (my favorite is NeoOffice), paste the material there as text, then copy and paste it to Google.

Of course. At the top of that list under Tools > Preferences are two blank spaces for you to add the "Replace" and "With" values. Of course, you'll need to be able to paste a single character for the "neater looking" fraction.

You are talking about two slightly different questions here. First of all the Keep with next feature, which sadly has been removed. This would have tried keeping your paragraph together, or move the entire paragraph to the next page. Secondly you are talking about someone adding text in front of your resume, and thusly shifting the content of your resume. ...

So I realize a more proper thing to do is to "group" the paragraph content together, so that each paragraph goes on the same page. Is there a way to do it? No. Several years ago it used to be possible, but the Keep with next feature was removed and hasn't been added back despite many requests. You may want to subscribe to ...

You can make an empty document with the account that has been customised. Share this document to your other Google account and in that other account go to Format - Paragraph styles - Options - Save as my default style. Now your other account should have the same customised styles as default.

No, so far this functionality has not beed added, even though it has been requested for several years now.

There are no tricks, just built-in tools and scripts. Manual conversion To turn http://example.com into http://example.com, select it and press Ctrl-K (or right-click and choose Link). This will be a hassle if you pasted in several dozens of these. Then a script is preferable. Conversion with a script I wrote two functions, for two different ...

Here is a script-based solution which allows one to insert a table with the contents from a given range within a given spreadsheet. I did not try to find a way to sync data real-time, as it didn't seem practical given potentially large volume of data that would have to be transferred with every edit to the spreadsheet. Instead, the script adds a custom menu ...
