So many advancements in deep learning currently improving things like natural language translation at Google ... any chance some of that will find its way to grammar checking in Docs? I feel that's an area that would make it really compete with Word.

I am successfully using the Google Drive REST API gapi.client.request to create a Google Docs file on Google Drive but can anyone tell me how I can either add Page Number fields into the footer or create the Doc using a predefined template that already has data in the Header and Footer?
I think there might be a way using Apps Script but I didn't really want to go that route.

Many thanks

Bonjour à la Gommunity

j'ai besoin de vous !
j'ai l'habitude d'utiliser la fonction IFS mais là, j'aimerais pouvoir utiliser un équivalent qui me permette d'indiquer en à la place de la valeur un intervalle de valeur.
soit pour exemple :
avec la fontion IFS :
IFS(A1>90; "A"; A1>80; "B"; A1>70; "C")
j'aimerais pouvoir indiquer des intervalles de références par ex. A1 entre 90 et >=80; "A"; <80 et >=70; "B") etc.

Un(e) expert(e) ?

Merci et bonne journée !

instead of vlookup you might consider index-match; looks a bit complicated and once you get a routine it flies

Is there a way to make a Google Form go back to a fresh Form after a submission instead of having to click on Submit Another Response? Thank you

Has anyone out there have early adopters program for Team Drive? I was an end user and had set up two team folders in Team Drive with important docs in them. Today, I went to access those docs but the team drive icon in the drive listing is gone! I can't get to the documents I put in Team Drive. Does any one know what might be going on with Team Drive???

Bonjour à tous,
J'ai besoin d'aide concernant une formule sur google Sheet.
J'ai un tableau avec plusieurs onglets et j'aimerai reporter une valeur identique (texte) sur chaque onglet. Je sais qu'il existe une formule mais je ne me souviens plus laquelle. Je sais également que la donnée de base que je veux voir reporter sur les autres onglets doit se trouver sur le 1er onglet.

Merci de votre aide

A colleague of mine uploaded a PowerPoint file that contained audio, but when it was opened in Drive using Slides, the audio was missing. We tried downloading it as a PowerPoint from Drive later, and the audio was still missing. Has anyone else had issues with Drive deleting parts of presentations created on other programs? Anyone know how to fix it and have the audio work?

So, my Drive was synced with my computer mainly as a backup. I had to upgrade my computer and everything was wiped clean (backed up to an external). Since them, I've altered quite a bit on my Drive (in the cloud). I put everything back on my computer from the external, but now that doesn't match what is on Google Drive. I want to resync my computer with Drive, but I don't know which files will be kept. Some of the files in Drive were not translated very well, so I need what is on my computer to get priority. Any advice and does that make sense?!?!

maybe create a folder with original file system an then sync down your drive files and copy them on top of your old file system then move that back on top of your your freshly synced drive folder. Just let everything complete syncing between steps

Is there any way to have google drive do the following? Have names, addressess, phone numbers etc. scrubbed in order to remove contacts. Example: For realtors all contacts scrubbed against expired listings. I am trying to create a updated report of contacts daily

Just looking at Google Drive pricing... via my PC 100GB costs £1.59 GBP per month or £15.99 per year.

But looking at the Drive app on my iPad, it says I can buy 100GB for £14.99.

I'm just curious why Drive is cheaper when bought on an Apple device - seems odd!

Three seconds short of total frustration...
I KNOW I read somewhere that I could place a shortcut to an individual document on my Android homescreen. I even saw the selection in a menu somewhere and as an experiment I made one and here's the screenshot to prove it (for a Google Doc file entitled, "Design Features" on a tablet running Android 6.0). But now I can't find the selection anywhere! I've looked through every menu I can think of and scoured Google. I've searched here. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?

I'm not an Apple guru, but I did run across these two pages while searching for my answer. I hope they help.

https://www.quora.com/Is-there-a-way-to-create-an-icon-shortcut-on-the-iPhone-iOS-7-home-screen-that-links-directly-to-an-specific-Google-Docs-file-a-spreadsheet-on-Google-Drive

http://www.addictivetips.com/ios/open-a-google-docs-file-from-a-home-screen-shortcut/

Since you said, "Mac", I assume it's the desktop instead of mobile, so I don't know if this will do anything for you, but sometimes stuff like this can translate. And maybe the articles will be good jumping-off points.

Incredible breakthrough. 
 
Cataloging Dozens of New Neuronal Subtypes in the Hypothalamus

The human brain is made up of billions of cells. We do not know the identity or exact function of countless thousands of them since comprehensive efforts to catalogue neurons have just recently begun. Studying these many still unidentified cells is an important “hot-spot” in frontier brain research since it offers the discovery of new cell functions that could play important roles in many diseases.

The research is in Nature Neuroscience. (full access paywall)
