Hey google docs. Right now I'm at an internship in Tokyo. In my every day work I write ALOT of text and no matter how it's done, it comes out messy.
So instead of writing one long document I usually split it up to make it simpler.
This is usually a bother since it means I have to go through a bunch of documents to find the right text I need. It's a mess. I hate it.
So today when I was writing, an idea just popped.
Why haven't anyone made a word processor with collapsable headlines and paragraphs? That would make total sense now in 2012 when 95% of all documents are read and edited on a digital device, be it a pc, tablet or smartphone.
It would be a killer featured perfect for google doc.
I have a pretty specific plan of how it could work:
When carefully slowly browsing through the documents, text would automatically be expanded (since it can tell you are reading carefully)
If you're scrolling fast (looking for the right part of the document), it would collapse everything just showing the headlines. When the scrolling slows down to a stop, either the headlines are opened automatically or they are opened with a click...
It would feel very natural using it, I am sure of it. And it would make word processing, which I never think we will get away from, much smoother.
Google docs has revolutionized how we share and collaborate around word processing, but the actual reading and writing of words into the document haven't changed in a looong time. Please implement this into google docs. :)
