How to format a document :

The following section covers formatting for Google Docs in a browser or Chromebook. Because formatting options in the Google Docs mobile app are very limited, I advise switching to a browser or Chromebook to format a document.

 

If you’ve used Microsoft Word or formatted email with Outlook or a Web-based email program such as Yahoo Mail or Gmail, most of the menu selections and buttons in the Docs toolbar (shown below) will look familiar:

 

The Print icon should be self-explanatory. Other toolbar formatting buttons include:

 

  • Paragraph styles. Besides Normal Text, a limited number of heading styles are available.

 

  • Fonts. You can choose from about a dozen serif, sans-serif and special fonts and change the size.

 

  • Font decoration. Bold/underline/italics can be activated with buttons, as well as text color ( the underlined letter a) and background color.

 

  • Text alignment. Indentation, centered text, flush right.

 

  • Internal/External Links. The chain icon lets you add URLs to selected text, as well as links to internal bookmarks (which can be placed using the Insert>Bookmark command).

 

Additional formatting options are available via the Format menu.
