Page numbers and page count in documents
Today weâre making it possible to add page numbers and page count to your documents. You can use the Insert > Page number option to add page numbers to the header or footer of your documents.
Weâve also added the option to insert page count, which displays the total number of pages in your document. You can combine the page number and the page count to create more advanced headers and footers. For example, to create the âPage 3 of 15â header below, take the following steps:
- Go to Insert > Header.
- Click the right align icon in the toolbar to move the cursor to the upper right corner.
- Type the word âPageâ.
- Go to Insert > Page number > Top of page to add page numbers to the headers of your document.
- Type the word âofâ.
- Go to Insert > Page count to add the total number of pages to the headers of your document.
Print with Google Cloud Print in just one click
Earlier this year, we announced Google Cloud Print for mobile documents. Google Cloud Print is a service in Beta that allows printing from any app on any device, OS or browser without the need to install any software.
Weâre making it easier to print on the go directly from your mobile documents list in Google Docs. Simply select a document from the documents list and click on Actions > Print from the bottom toolbar. Currently, you can use Cloud Print in Google documents and spreadsheets.
To get started, youâll need to connect your printer to Google Cloud Print. To learn more, check out the new site.
We hope youâll take advantage of these latest features. Stay tuned for the next This Week in Docs.
