A Different Kind of Paint
Another great feature is the Paint Format icon. This allows you to keep the same formatting for a group of words instead of repeating the process several different times. For example, if you have headings in your document that are Bold, Italicized, Underlined, 28 point font, and hunter green in color, it's easy to make them all uniform without having to repeat that process for however many headings you have. With that heading in its new look, highlight it and then click the Paint Format icon. This action "memorizes" those items. Then, highlight a new heading (or text selection), and the new format appears. Be careful not to click an area once you have the Paint Format icon selected because you may only format one letter or more than you want and will have to repeat the process.

Linking to Other Documents or Sites
Often times in a Doc, you'll want to direct students to another location, whether it be a Doc that contains the rubric or a website with information on a topic. Each Doc has its own unique website address, so linking to a document is simple! In order to do this, highlight the text you'd like to turn into a link. Then, click the link icon at the top of the page. You can either paste the address into the bar or, because it's Google, type the website you'd like to direct them to and it will suggest a few for you. Once finished, click "Apply" and your text is now a link to other locations in cyberspace!
