Google Docs update eliminates an extremely common frustration

Google Docs is about to receive an update that will help users locate tools and features more easily, especially those buried deep in menus.

The cloud-based word processor will get three main changes: shortcut menus for easier navigation, reordering of items in those menus, and more prominent icons to help users find them faster.

Anyone who uses Google’s desktop software for school, work, or personal use will appreciate how easy navigation should now be.

“For the features that have been revamped, we hope their new location in the menu will be more intuitive and make it easier and faster to navigate the product,” Google said.

“In particular, features related to Apps Script are now grouped under the new ‘Extensions’ menu. This includes access to the Apps Script IDE as well as managing add-ons.”

Google plans to complete the rollout by the end of May.

Always improving

Google recently made a number of changes to Docs, including adding an “inclusive content” warning that quickly started suggesting unnecessary material and/or ignoring genuinely problematic pieces of text.

Google also recently beefed up the Docs commenting system, which is really helpful for remote teams who want to collaborate on a document.

While not every update is a success, Google’s Workspace tools are among the best, and the company’s commitment to frequent incremental updates, delivered without having to purchase a new version, stands out. one of the main reasons.
