What do you think are some of the most commonly used shortcuts on a computer? I am sure that Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V would rank pretty high up there, but then again, that is just my perception and I could be wrong about it. Still, Google has just announced that they intend to make life a whole lot easier for those who want to copy and paste information between Gmail and Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, although the only catch (hey, you should know by now that there is no such thing as a free lunch in this world) would be that you will need to use Chrome to enjoy this benefit. No one should be complaining though, unless you are a die hard Internet Explorer fan, of course.
Using Google’s Chrome browser, you are now able to copy entire slides from one presentation to another, where it allows you to bring shapes from drawings into a slide, and even transfer entire tables from a spreadsheet over to a Gmail message. Google puts their reputation on the line by claiming that all of the formatting would remain the same, and nothing will run. If you still insist on using a different browser, then you will need to make use of Google’s web clipboard, but your productivity would take quite a hit since it would require up to 8 steps to get anything done. Is this an indirect and yet wily method of getting folks to move over to Chrome?
