The new look for Google Docs and Sites is now available to preview as an opt-in for scheduled release domains. You’ll see clean menus and toolbars, prominent action buttons, and colorful presence that pops when you’re editing with others.
Some of the changes:
- We made it clearer that your document is always saved, by showing “Saving...” right after you make a change and then “All changes saved” once it’s fully saved.
- We added an icon to the Share button so you can tell if your document is shared at a glance.
- If you’re looking for options that were previously under the Share button (e.g. “Email as attachment...”), you can now find these in the File menu.
- By default, the documents list automatically fits a comfortable number of documents on your screen (large desktop monitors show more, smaller laptop screens show fewer). We also added density options to give you more control.
If you opt in to the new look and want to go back, choose Help > Use the classic look (or in the gear menu, for some products). We’ll keep you updated on when these changes will become the default, and there’s more information on the new look at http://whatsnew.googleapps.com/new-look.
