Google Docs and Sheets picked up two new useful updates today. Google Docs users will be able from now on to edit documents while in Print layout view. Tap the edit pencil when viewing a document and users will be able to make changes to it without leaving that mode. That 'novelty' has me confused, as the experience is different in Microsoft Office where after launching Word you go directly in Print layout view, unless you've deliberately switched to another view previously. But I guess Google Docs first opens in Edit mode or something like that. The information to retain here is that tapping on the pencil in Print Layout mode will let you edit a document without switching views.
Google Sheets for its part is getting conditional formatting. A tool that allows you to apply formats to cells or a range of cells, rows and columns based on certain conditions. The formatting change depends on the value of cells or formula. For example, a cell may have its content become red or green if it contains a particular word or number, like green if there is a profit or red in case of loss in a balance sheet. Conditional Formatting is an excellent tool to highlight sheet content for quick viewing. Note that you'll be able to create new and edit existing conditional formatting rules.
Google made the announcement of the release of these features on its blog today, but they may not appear in the store yet because it is a gradual update. But rest assured it is coming.
This update is also available on iOS.
