8 Changes to Google Docs & Slides Menus

If you're a regular Google Docs and Google Slides user you may have already noticed some changes to your menus and toolbars. If you haven't seen anything change, you will see some changes soon. Yesterday, Google announced eight changes to the Docs and Slides drop-down menus and toolbars. None of the changes will impact the functionality of either tool. Google says that the changes are being made to make it easier to find certain functions.

Google Docs drop-down menu and toolbar changes:

  • Text formatting options will move to a new sub-menu in the Format drop-down menu.
  • Separate controls for text highlighting and text color choices in the toolbar.
  • New "insert image" option in the toolbar.
  • Table insertion and formatting options will only be in the Format drop-down menu.
Google Slides drop-down menu and toolbar changes:
  • In the "Slide" menu you will find four new options in a new "Move" sub-menu.
  • Table insertion and formatting options will only be in the Format drop-down menu.
  • The options to align horizontally and vertically will be placed in a new "Align" sub-menu.
  • The "Insert" menu will have items displayed in a new order (this change will also apply to Google Docs and Sheets).
