Pressing Tab when the cursor is at the rightmost of the bottom row automatically adds a new row below it. It's quite handy if you don't know how many rows you need in advance and require them as you type along.

That probably doesn't answer your problem, but for the record, there is something that looks like symlinks (january 2019), but is not. In particular you can't change the target without recreating the link, which changes its URL. You can create such links from the GDrive web interface by selecting a file and pressing Shift-Z. No idea why they made it so ...

Neither ctrl+V nor control+shift+V worked for me - both pasted spaces as tabs. However, I tried find and replace, checked with regular expressions, and changed \t into four spaces. My example then lined up correctly.

To change the margins one can use File --> Page Layout --> Margins but doing so does not (for me at 2018-10-18) offer a change of the unit-of-measure of the margins. Earlier answers show that this is influenced by the user's language. (1) It used to be the language of the doc (2) That was changed to the user's Google Account's language. Well; I have set ...

It is possible to edit the Google Docs toolbar, only very basically – by tweaking the CSS. This Chrome extension can inject custom CSS into any page: User CSS - Chrome Web Store I used it to hide some of the buttons I rarely use, so I can make my browser window smaller w/out forcing the buttons on the right into the "overflow menu." Idk if it's possible to ...

What I did to solve the problem which is probably doc specific, but I was using H1 through H3, what would have been H4 I didn't want to show up in the TOC. I converted all the H4's to Subtitles, then styled Subtitles the way I wanted it. Subtitles don't show up in the TOC. How to convert all headings into another heading:

Beyond adding bookmarks, every document heading (Format > Paragraph Styles) automatically makes an anchor. You can see the URL change as you navigate through the different headings.

Alternatively, you can have the link to PDF version of the current document: Share the doc via link. You'll have link like this: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1au12_...mk5l1A/edit?usp=sharing Replace «/edit?usp=sharing» to «/export?format=pdf» Now, this link will always point to PDF file with current version of the doc. The file will not be stored in ...

I noticed that the method mentioned by Fonebone also works with colored text, highlighted text, text in a certain alignment (left, centered, and right), font, and font size, as well as the aforementioned emboldening, italicizing, underlining, and striking through. Basically, the text in your group will have to be the exact same, but you will have a seemingly ...

Google Doc has a place for custom user scripts .To insert the script, open your Google Doc file, go to the Tools -> Script Editor, replace the code with this function: function onOpen() { var doc = DocumentApp.getActiveDocument(); var footer = doc.getFooter(); //gets the footer footer.clear(); //clears all data in footer //Get date var date = ...

It looks that Google documents requires a paragraph before an after a table, so to avoid having a blank page after a table, reduce the table or the page margins to leave enough space for the "after table paragraph" (you could try set the last paragraph font size to the smaller allowed font size).

Had this issue as well... Go to the vertical ellipse (three vertical dots in top right corner). Go to more tools-> Developer tools. Make sure the 'Elements' tab is clicked and hit any part of the HTML code. Next hold CTRL+F (the find option) and a search bar will appear. Search for "show side panel". Go through the search (my search came up with two results)...

The "Fancy new" .new shortcuts are just redirecting urls. They only work with the active Google user currently signed in with the browser that is making the request. There is no way to change this currently. If you use chrome, the best practical solution is to have a seperate user profile for each user.

TL;DR Replace /edit in the url with /copy If you follow the tutorial Quickstart: Managing Responses for Google Forms, you'll see that the first step is: Make a copy of the sample spreadsheet Apps Script Quickstart: Managing responses for Google Forms. Clicking on the link takes you to a page such as: If you look at the URL they use you'll ...

Sorry, Google's permissions settings are simply not that granular. In their eyes, the choices are Can view Can comment [and view] Can edit [and comment and view] and those choices can be offered to individual accounts by email address, to anyone with the link, or publicly on the web. Google is a huge company, but if their choices are causing a problem for ...

Go to takeout.google.com Deselect all and select only Drive. By default, the data will be downloaded in MS format, but if you want your data in different formats (e.g. PDF), click on "Multiple formats" before going to the next step.

Use the script editor to store hidden information. You can use comments /* */ to hold the actual information. Make sure and click save when you are done.

So after deleting the TOC and recreating it from scratch, I can see that the correct (default) behaviour is that all H1s in the TOC should be bold. I think what caused my confusion here is that most formatting in the TOC is lost when you 'Update' the TOC contents, however it seems that removing bold formatting from a header is not lost on update. In my ...

I also had this issue, I run to Google product forum with similar question. My problem was having Grammerly installed in Chrome, which can interfere with the spell checker. If you don't have Grammerly, other extensions may interfere too. Try to disable or uninstall the extenstion and refresh the document. For me disabling of Grammerly has done the job. ...

As far as I'm aware, custom named styles (like "Normal text" etc.) are not yet supported and nobody is aware of any plans to implement them. However, implicit, "by example" styles exist and can be used with decent efficiency via "Copy format", "Paste format", "Paint format" and "Select all matching text" functions. The usage is roughly like this: In order ...

View - Print Layout (Ensure Print Layout is selected) Works everytime - do not bother with the other workarounds as they do not address the issue.
