A New Vertical Ruler and New Margin Settings in Google Docs

Google has added two new formatting features to Google Docs. First, there is now a vertical ruler that you can use to evenly space the rows in tables in your Google Documents. Second, you can now adjust the size of the margins in your headers and footers. 

Both of these changes will be helpful to those who use a lot of tables and charts in their documents. I wish that the vertical ruler feature had been available last week when I was trying to format a table to align to a sheet of name tag stickers I was trying to print. 

Like most updates to Google Docs and other G Suite products, this update will be gradually rolling-out over the course of the next couple of weeks. If you don't see the new features today, you will see them before too long.
