Google Docs Gets A Facelift

More than just looking pretty, Google Docs & Spreadsheets has gotten an organizational facelift.

Now instead of just tagging your documents, you can drag and drop everything into folders. You will also notice anything you’ve tagged previously, is now in a corresponding folder. The Google team have additionally added a Google Suggest-esque seach to your docs – but I’ve, personally, never seen much use in this.

It’s a welcome change to make everything more manageable over there at Google Docs, but nothing really ground breaking. So here are some Google Doc & Spreadsheet shortcuts:

Shift+Tab = Move to previous cell in table (documents) or row (spreadsheets)
