    This isn’t available for existing documents, what a fail.

    @John – While the new templates might be a problem on existing documents, the fonts can be applied to all documents new and old…

    Does anybody know if Google Docs has a spell checker in other languages (i.e. Italian). This is the only reason why I am still hangin on onto MS Word.
    I have not used Google Docs before, any words of wisdom about compatibility with people using MS Word?
    Any info would be very much appreciated.

    Google docs seem SO SLOW. Any fixes for that would be most welcome. Other programs go at a reasonable speed, but any google docs I use, just seem to crawl along.

    I never have any issues with it being slow… I think it’s at least 5-10x faster then libre/open office.

    G docs is as quick as your Internet connection you goose Marie
