Google Documents Editor Updates

Google has released several enhancements to the Google Docs word processor.

  • Comment scrolling:
    Whenever you click in a comment it will now scroll so that it’s directly beside the associated text.
  • Dictionary:
    Select a word in your doc, you can look up the definition for that word by going to ‘Tools’ then ‘Define…’.
  • Special Characters:
    Click ‘Insert’, then ‘Special characters’.
  • Metric Units:
    If your language is set to ‘English US’, your ruler will be set in inches. All other locales will now see the ruler with metric units but this will soon be a setting that you can modify.
