Wanted to confirm that this works in Google Docs. Thanks so much for the answers in this thread. What you do is highlight the portion you'd like to be linked in your document internally. Then, open up the "Insert" drop-down and click "Bookmark". That portion now will show up as an option when you want to link it elsewhere in the document. You can link it by ...

It's more likely that the user who uploaded the images is the owner of them and if you are not finding the images it's more likely that the files were shared with anyone with the link instead of sharing them with specific people including your with your account. The alternatives are Make the owner of the files share them with your account instead with ...

Anyone with permission to edit can also "delete", by wiping out all the contents of a file and leaving it blank. I think the only more-or-less usable solution for this is to keep a backup of every file (or the files itself, as soon as they reach a point where they will not be edited anymore) in another folders, not accessible to anyone.

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 ...

I do not have a solution if you insist on using a form, but otherwise I have a very simple solution: Let's say that the unique column is A. Then you create the following data validation rule on A2 (the 1st record after the header): =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$999,A2)<=1 . Then, you copy the cell and select the entire column, right-click, expand the paste special ...

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.

Go to Settings, then on the "General" tab, uncheck "Automatically put your Google Photos into a folder in My Drive".

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 ...

A Google Docs document encodes everything in 'elements' within the Kix editor that it's all based on (it's closed source as basically this is the big trade secret, with which anyone else could run their own Docs service - which is a shame imo). You can access these elements with Google Apps Script, a variant of Javascript - but writing Markdown from the ...

I had this problem with Firefox. I did this: Tools → options → security I had Warn me when sites try to install add ons checked. I added an exception for 0.docs.google.com and now it seems to be working ok (for now).

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.

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.

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 ...

This is how you can do it: In the search bar in drive use "to:" to find documents you shared with someone. Example: to:bob@gmail.com

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 ...

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 ...
