Level Up on Google Docs

Old Google Docs, new-to-you tricks. Let’s go:

Look up definitions
Select a word > Tools > Dictionary. That’s Ctrl + Shift + Y on Windows and Cmd + Shift + Y on Mac.

Switch to pageless view
Ditch the printing interface for an infinite canvas with File > Page Setup > Pageless.

Create building blocks 
Get started with templates for emails, meeting notes, project roadmaps, and more. Just head to Insert > Building Blocks or click “More” at the top of a new doc.

Compare documents
Track differences between two documents by opening Tools > Compare documents.

Explore your Drive You can drag and drop stuff from the web and your Drive right into your doc from Tools > Explore.

Emoji react
Did you know you can react to comments with emojis? Just hover and select.

Drop in a smart chip
You can add dynamic hover-over information, like a Google Map thumbnail, by selecting Insert > Date, People, File, Calendar Event, or Place. It works for linking between files, too.
