Working in a lengthy Google Doc can get cumbersome when you want to find the right section.
Google thinks it has the fix for this with a new document outline tool that’s rolling out to the Android and web versions of Google Docs.
On Android, you can scroll through the different sections of your file with a semi-circle-shaped scrolling tool.
The outline works similarly on the web, though with the extra screen real estate you can get a broad overview of how else you’ve divided up the parts of your document with different types of subheads.
The impact on you: This catches up Google Docs with Word, which has long had an outline tool to quickly move to a different section of your document. The new feature will be welcome for students who write term papers or others who need to slog through a lengthy document.
