– To create a doc from a template, click the Create button, and select From template….
Major changes to Docs, Spreadsheets, and Sites include :
– Click the Share button to share your item with other people or modify the sharing settings. Options such as Publish to a web page and Email collaborators have moved to the File menu.
– The Share button will now show the visibility state of your doc when you mouse over it.
– Since Google Docs continuously saves your work, the Save button has been removed. The last updated time now shows near the menu bar.
– There’s now a button that lets you navigate back to your Documents List, in place of the Google Docs logo. Mouse over the doc name, and click the left arrow icon to get back to your Documents List.
