New updates for Google Apps – November



Custom themes in Google Forms

What’s new: Applying themes to forms is a great way to personalize and tailor them to their intended audience. With this launch, people working with Google Forms will now be able to apply custom themes to their forms.

This includes adding custom images or logos to the header and page background, specifying the font details (type, size, color) and paragraph alignment for the form text, and choosing the color for the form and page backgrounds. We’ve also refreshed the overall Forms UI and added a brand new gallery of modern default themes.

In addition, if a form using a custom theme is shared within a domain, others can copy that theme in order to use it themselves. This helps to ensure a consistent look and feel across forms used in that domain.

How it works: To add a custom theme, just create a new form and click the “Change theme” button in the toolbar.

From there, you can add your own photos or logos to the header, customize fonts and colors, pick a background, and more.

Automated lists, backspace to undo autocorrections in Google Docs editors

What’s new: In Google Docs, Slides, and Drawings, we will now automatically turn on bulleted or numbered list mode when we detect that a person wants to make a list based on what was typed as the first visible character in a paragraph.
Coupled with this launch, pressing the backspace button immediately after any autocorrection, including automated lists, will undo it. For example, if a person types ‘(c)’ and the autocorrect system converts it to the copyright symbol ‘©’, pressing backspace immediately after it will revert it back to ‘(c)’.
