Frustrated Edits Duplicating When Changes are Made to "Saved as" Doc...

Recently this question was asked in the Google Docs Help Forum and I see it as a good time to review using "Make a Copy". I use "File Make a Copy" to  create templates of prior docs, slides, forms, and sheets. This makes life easier then rebuilding the document from scratch. It also wipes the "Revision History" clean and disconnects the document form all parties it was shared with. When you "Make a Copy" it is like starting over but with guidelines.

Please follow the below steps for making a copy:
  1. Open Google Doc
  2. Click File 
  3. Select Make a Copy 
  4. Edit Title 
  5. Select a Destination Folder 
  6. Click OK

What Google Doc Font should I use for my Egyptian Project?

There are literally hundreds of font styles to choose from for a Google Doc. If I was creating a project about Egypt there are two fonts which I might use for creating titles and headings. The font styles I like are Algerian and Caesar.  

You can learn about installing Google Doc Fonts from the following Google Doc Help Center Article: Edit and format a document. Please pay special attention to the "Format your Font" section.

Can I Create Columns In a Google Doc?

Creating columns is a tool which was added earlier this year to Google Docs. It is a little tricky to use. If you choose an amount of columns right away you will have to type to the bottom of the page before the words continue in the next column. This works well if you are planning to use two or three column text to fill the whole page. However there may be times you only want to fill part of a page with two or more columns. So what do you do to make columns work?
