I faced the same problem. In the new web interface you can click the button with folder name and select the Add star item. However, for me this does not have any effect in web interface (the star is lost after page refresh) nor in Android Google Drive app, though it miraculously works in Google Drive app on iPad. Apparently Google needs some more time to ...

Even if there is - you should assume that sooner or later the "new" Google Drive will just be "the" Google Drive, and the old one will no longer be available. Choosing not to upgrade (ie to stay with the old version) is not really an option when using on-line services instead of applications that you install.

This will do: =SUM(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(ROW()-11;COLUMN();4) &":"& ADDRESS(ROW()-1;COLUMN();4))) Just paste it any cell you like and it will sum 10 cells above it, with no changes to the value. The ADDRESS function returns a string with the name reference of a cell. We join two references with a ":" between them, giving us a string like "B5:B15". We ...

You'll see the option "Create Application Shortcuts" ...

I had a similar problem and found a good solution. Copy the table to some simple text editor that supports regex. I used notepad++. Then insert the decimal separator before the numbers. Then you can copy the table to the spreadsheet. E.g. if you have 3 digits without a decimal separator in front, you search replace using (\d\d\d) and .\1.

Try these settings: Just once for all docs: View: Print layout: unchecked For each doc: File: Page setup: Orientation: Landscape Paper size: Tabloid (11" x 17") Zoom: Fit or 100%, etc. If the pragmatic goal is to maximize the usable width, the noted settings together contribute to this effect. If you're not sufficiently satisfied, you can decrease ...

You can highlight multiple docs at once using "command" + left click on Mac. I believe that correspond to "control" on PC. This will highlight multiple docs at once, and then you can click the trashcan which will delete all the selected files.

You can host a website, of sorts, on Google Drive. There are caveats: It can only be simple HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. No scripting (e.g., PHP). The only way to have a custom domain is to have such a domain hosted elsewhere and either redirect to your Google Drive "site" or otherwise consume it via an iFrame or some other method. Per Google Support this ...

Just had the same problem, except it was a shared folder sent to me that didn't even show the download all button or have the ability to save more than one file (in this case images) at once. Just found Download Master, a plugin for Chrome, worked a charm—it scans the page for links and lets you filter by file type, it doesn't compress for downloads, so it ...

I had the same concerns a few moments ago and found your question but no answer given satisfies my needs. Nevertheless I found something that seems to work for what I believe you are really asking (saving a file from it's URL with the less possible clics, and specially avoiding to save it on your device). The following 3 procedures allow you tu upload ...

You can reduce the gap at the top of a table by placing the cursor above the table, and reducing the font size. I can't seem to reduce it below 6 points, and even this required me to type the number into the "Font size" box. However, it does at least move the table up a bit. I had to do the same thing at the bottom of my table. If anybody wants to log this ...

Try this: =HYPERLINK("http://www.google.com/search?q="&A13&L13&"&safe=active",A13) A13 uses whatever text is in the cell to search.

Unfortunately we found this out the hard way. Even when non-owners delete a shared file, it deletes from the whole lot! Using Safari it pops up and says no permission and then it deletes the file or folder!

This actually happens in all formats that I've tried (not just PDF). I can't offer a ready-made solution for generating the PDF format. But I did solve this for HTML. Programmatically, you would need to parse the (HTML) document and rewrite the href attribute while URLdecoding the true link which is after the ?q= part. The code here is PHP from the ...
