Google improves Docs with new fonts and templates

It looks like Google Docs is getting another update (again), this time with 450 new fonts and 60 new templates. The new fonts and templates will be perfect for creating pamphlets, invitations and creative presentations at work or in school. “In the past month we’ve made updates both big and small to Google Docs, and today we’re announcing one more: web fonts in Google documents,” Isabella Ip said.

Using the new fonts is easy. You will need to just click the font menu and select the “Add fonts” button at the bottom. Then, you will be directed to the menu where all the Google web fonts are available. Once the desired font is selected, you will be free to use those fonts in Google Docs. That’s it! Google Drive is also now updated with a few more options for inserting images in Docs.

One interesting feature is the capability to search for images from the LIFE magazine’s photo archive. Even better, you can also add and capture images directly with your webcam. You’ve probably experienced slight problems with Docs especially when creating charts. Well, that will change as well as Docs is now supporting minor gridlines with options to customize the formats and axis labels. Support for screenreaders has been added as well.
