6 Tips I love in Google Docs

I have been using Google Docs in replacement of Microsoft Office. The main reason I’m using Google Docs is that I can access my documents anywhere and there are a lot of features I found useful in Google Docs. Amongst, I complied 6 tips I love.

1. Adding a web link address easier

3. Easy to generate table of contents

Generating table of contents is quite easy in Google Docs. Just add the headings in your document and place your cursor at the top, and then invoke the menu “Insert >> Table of contents”. table-of-contents

4. Export as PDF

Exporting and saving your file as PDF is handy and fairly simple in Google Docs. Select the menu “File >> Download as >> PDF Document (.pdf)”.
