Search giant, Google is updating its office software, according to reports this update is expected to bring some form of ease to formatting documents in Google Docs for mobile devices. Last year, page breaks before paragraphs were added in Google Docs for web. According to a new blog post on Google Workspace, the same functionality is now added for mobile devices.
This feature being rolled out by the search giant is particularly useful for users who are writers or journalists as they can input certain paragraph styles to always create a new page such as titles, subtitles or headings.
Just like in the Google Docs for web, users can now make paragraphs begin on a new page with the “Add page break before” option that is now available on Google Docs for mobile phones.
Asides from keeping your formatting the same throughout a document, another advantage of this feature is that users can import and export Microsoft Word and other third-party documents that have “Page break before” applied to paragraphs while Google Docs retains that formatting.
While the add page breaks before paragraphs have already rolled out, the feature wouldn’t be available to Google Docs users, according to the search giant it could take up to 7 days on Android and up to 15 days on iOS platforms. Once it’s available to you, a new formatting menu pops up at the bottom of your screen that makes configuration to the style of your documents on the go easier.
