Navigating your Google Doc is easy using bookmarks and hyperlinking the text, but Google Docs has an even easier way to do this for longer documents with multiple sections.
Just add a table of contents from the bottom of the "Insert" menu.
Then when you add a section heading within your text, highlight it and hold cmd+alt+1 to create a big heading for that section. Use 2 or 3 instead of 1 for smaller headings. All headings are automatically hyperlinked in the table of contents.
You can refresh the table of contents by clicking within it and then clicking the refresh arrow.
Google Docs even indents the smaller headings for you, giving your document a more professional feel.
So you've taken a load of notes at a meeting, typed them as fast as your fingers can manage, and now you have everything in lower case - no capitals. If you want to submit some minutes or notes to a colleague, you're going to have to correct.
In comes Change Case, a Google Docs add-on that allows you to apply case formatting to a block of text. You want all caps? Sure! Capitals for first letters (Title case)? Done! Sentence case for normal prose? Easy!
Click on the "Add-On" menu and select "Get add-ons...).
Search for "Change Case", then click the blue "+ Free" button on the right hand side to add this to your Google Apps account.
Google will work away to add the add-on to your account. Afterwards, click "Add-ons" again in the menu bar, at the top will be an option for "Change Case". Hover over "Change Case" to reveal all the options for formatting text.
To apply this to a word, sentence or paragraph, just highlight what you want to change, then go back to the Change Case menu to alter as you wish.
