Google’s launched some new features in Google Docs, mostly in the Presentations app. For instance, it’s now possible to embed a slideshow into a page using a YouTube player-like widget, except it’s an inline frame (meaning potential accessibility headaches for non-supporting user agents). They’ve also tweaked the toolbar, enabled reorganizing slides, set up a facility to import slides form other presentations (Google or from an uploaded file) and implemented a feature to let users simply drop images from other websites into a presentation slide.
Fortunately, they didn’t spend all their time developing for the Presentations application. The Docs interface itself got a little makeover. The bars over each of the folders (which, counter intuitively, behave like labels instead) have been shrunk. Speaking of folders, there’s now the ability to create sub-folders. Observe the UI:
Aside from that, documents can now be renamed from the main screen, without first opening the file. All in all, a well-endowed update. I hope to see more new stuff coming in the future, as well.
