Google adds school-friendly features to Google Doc
Google has added more features to the Google Doc such as an equation editor, superscripts and subscripts and even translation that would be of use for users, especially students.
We’ve now added a bunch of back to school features which should help our fellow students make the transition from summer to school that much easier. We created an equation editor so you can easily complete problem sets online or write papers that include equations. If you’re taking math, you can now take notes in class or answer questions using Google Docs.
In the same vein, we also added superscripts and subscripts — perfect for expressing chemical compounds or algebraic expressions. For language enthusiasts, we integrated translation features into Google Docs. You can translate either a single word or an entire document — handy for making sure you’re on the right track when writing those foreign language essays.
For those of you conducting surveys, we added a “Go to page based on answer” option in Google forms, making it easy to show participants only those questions that are relevant to them.
We also came up with a few features for humanities buffs. To make outlining term papers more customizable, we made it easy to select different bulleting styles for lists by adding an option to the format menu. And when that paper is written and ready to turn in, you now have the option to print footnotes as endnotes for a cleaner-looking paper.
