Anybody else having problems with new/copied files not showing up for hours?  In the last day or so, I've created a few new Presentations (some with "Create", some with "Make a Copy"), but they are not showing up in the folder (or anywhere) for hours. This is extremely annoying and creating a major problem for me. If I make a copy from within a file, I can immediately edit the copy (because the copy opens up in a new tab), but it is nowhere to be found within the Drive directory for hours. I've verified that this is happening on two separate computers and with two separate Google accounts.

My problem is with uploaded videos that take forever to render and stream. They frequently fail to stream at all.

In today's +Synergyse  blog post, we follow up to our previous post, Top 10 Google Apps Script for Education. We are happy to bring you our updated Top 10 Google Docs & Sheets Add-ons for Education. Google recently launched the Add-ons feature, which brings really useful Apps Script based extensions directly inside Docs & Sheets. We believe both teachers & students using #GoogleApps    will find these Add-ons useful. #GAFE     #GoogleDocs     #GoogleSheets

I feel you should recheck +Sam Lyon , and aside Mark Sir, hangout cant share docs, you have to choose sharing as said by +Michael Daniels or with use of another app.

Estou a procura de uma função em Planilhas que somente o editor da célula possa modific-la.
Resumindo, seria uma celula em branco ser editada por um usuário compartilhado e após sua edição a célula trava, não permitindo que outros uruários compartilhados altere seu conteúdo.

Alguem sabe se existe isso?

Já tentei "protejer intervalo" ou "proteger página" porém nenhuma realiza a função automaticamente após o editor da celula confirma os dados com "enter".

Anyone knows what's happening to my Mac (Chrome browser)? 
Those grey lines start appearing yesterday. 

I tried again with Mozilla and there was no such problem but I prefer Chrome browser.

Also, sometimes the cursor kind of misaligned. 

Any ideas on fixing this issue?  It's been bugging me since I started using Google Docs.

+Scott Patrick Those grey lines appear only on this doc and only if it's opened with Chrome Browser. If this particular doc is opened with Mozilla and Safari it's fine.

In docs I miss these two features: real columns and merging cells in tables. Am I the only one who misses these two features?

I have a big picture question regarding the use of Drive and Doctopus. In a perfect world I would like to have teachers sign into Drive in the Fall and see that all of their classes have been set up ala Doctopus. Meaning that the class folders would have been created (Teacher, Student, Class View and Class Edit).
This would allow them to just have to learn the distribution of assignments portion of Doctopus. I believe I may have much more buy in from teachers if they can see the folder structure already in place and begin distributing, viewing and grading assignments right away.
Does anyone know of a way to do this from the admin end of Google? Somehow using rosters from a Student Information System to complete this step automatically.

It could be nice - at least as a connection/import from a exported (from sis) list :-)

Has anyone had an issue switching to the new sheets?  I was working with a group of teachers today and when creating a form, the corresponding sheet seemed to be in old sheets (the add-ons menu was not available). Everyone checked to see that they were using the new sheets before we started?

Has anyone else had this issue? Any ideas to resolve this?

When you are in the doc, go to the menu Insert - drawing and paste the table in the drawing.

Is there any news on an update for Google Drive and/or QuickOffice for iOS? The Android versions work like a charm and offer many useful functionalities, which are still lacking on iOS. Especially now, in comparison to MS Office for iPad...

In my opinion, the Android version needs to add an ability to use Google's Chromecast device, for document (especially presentations) display on the big screen...

Hey guys and gals.  I've been happily able to edit my documents on my Android phone since owning one.  Just today, I've been able to convert my friend to Google Docs, but he has an iPhone and iPad.  And we've realised there is no way to edit tables in a Google Doc.  Does anyone know of a third party iOS app that can edit tables?

We're using Google Apps for Education at our institution and I'm stumped that this still isn't possible from iOS, especially now that MS Office is available on the iPad. I'm hoping for an update, pronto!

Hi! In Google forms, you can choose the free text answers, how can you make them presentable?
