There's a defect listed on the Google Apps Script issue tracker. We'll have to wait it out to see when a project member responds to it, I'm assuming.

You can use Google Docs as your writing tool, but you will have to use a blogging platform as your publishing tool. There are a few options for this. The simplest is to write a post in Docs, copy the content and paste it into a blog post. I'm not sure how well this will work in the different blogging platforms. I did test a few years back whether it ...

To work around the problem, you can use a naming convention and a script. E.g., the users can agree to consider a file deleted if its name is "zzz_delete_this_file" (multiple files can have the same name in Google Drive). Users can also install the following script (general information on scripts) and have it run every hour or every minute: function ...

With consumer accounts it's not possible to delete files owned by someone else. Bear in mind that users can transfer the file ownership of files created online but not of uploaded files, like PDF files and images.

The only way I found, which is super stupid and as anti-user-friendly as they go (I guess that's the new Google), is to download the files (it will take a while, will create a big ZIP file and might crash the Google Drive app) unzip them, because while Google Drive gives you zip, Google Photos doesn't allow ZIP (output of an app is not accepted in ...

Unfortunately, you can't do that with Google Drive. Removing a folder from the list of folders to sync removes it from your local drive. Google Drive presumably assumes that the "master" version of your files exist in the "cloud". A folder set to not sync exists at drive.google.com, but can't exist on your hard drive. (At least, not in the Google Drive ...

I don't think Drive allows you to do it out of the box, but am open to correction. It's a bit of a hack, but Google url shortener or similar might do what you need as a workaround. Instead of sharing the link generated from Drive, you manually enter that into the url shortener and share the link it outputs.

Regarding 1. Yes, it's possible. Ask to the document owner that don't change the file format of the file you are collaborating. Regarding 2. No, Google Drive for PC doesn't merge versions automatically of files from Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. Instead it stores a new version each time a file is reviewed. It's worth to say that Google recently launched a ...

There are two sides to every email exchange. Your outbound server needs to allow an extra large attachment, the inbound server also has to allow it. It does you no good if the attachment is stripped or the message is blocked and it never get to the recipient. For organizations where the mail remains on the server, they don't want to keep the large ...

I don't think it is possible, because when I look in the Advanced Search form, there is a drop-down list of file types which doesn't include gdocs: However, it is possible to look for an MS Office document.

When I decide that I no longer need a file or folder on my computer but it's synced to Google Drive (the Cloud), and I want to keep a copy of on Google Drive (in the Cloud), I simply log into Google Drive through my browser, find that file or folder, and move it out of the synced folder to where it won't be synced with my computer. That way nothing I do on ...

I was trying to find every file that had owners that were not myself as well, it was driving me crazy. Somehow there were a good amount of files and folders in there that I never remember having added at all. Not sure at all how that happened. Anyways, after playing around for a bit I found that if you search at the top, use: -owner:me That will show ...
