Creating Google Docs

Introduction

Creating Google Docs 
Google Drive also give you access to Google Docs, a suite of tools that allow you to create and edit a variety of different files, like Documents,Spreadsheets, and Presentations.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to create files in Google Docs format. In addition, you'll also learn about using templates to create professional looking documents.

Creating New Docs

There are six types of docs that you can create:
  • Documents (like documents in Microsoft Word)
  • Spreadsheets (like worksheets in Microsoft Excel)
  • Presentations (like presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint)
  •  Forms
  •  Drawings
  •  Tables

Although the types of docs are very different from one another, the process for creating and sharing docs is the same for all types.

To Create a New Doc:

  1. Navigate to your Google Drive.
  2. Locate and click the Create button.
  3. Select the type of doc you would like to create from the drop-down menu.

  4. Your new doc will open automatically in a new tab on your browser.

  6. Type a name for your doc, then click OK.

  8. If you accidentally close your doc or need to make revisions, you can access it again from your Google Drive, where it will be saved automatically.

You may notice that there is no save button. This is because Google Docs uses auto-save, which automatically and immediately saves your files as you edit them.

Creating Docs with Templates

template is a pre-designed doc that you can use to create docs quickly without having to think aboutformatting. With a template, many of the big design decisions like margin size, font style and size, and spacing are predetermined.
Most templates are designed to help users create specific kinds of docs. For instance, you might use a template to create a resumenewsletter, or some other type of doc that you wish to look a certain way.

While there is a wide selection of templates you can use in Google Docs, few of them are well made, and they aren't very well organized within the template selector. For this reason, we recommend that you start by using templates made by Google, which tend to be of higher quality than user-submitted templates.

To Create a New Doc from an Official Google Template:

  1. Navigate to Templates Submitted by Google.
