Google Docs Earns New Nav Panel for Jumping Through Large Files
Google is updating its Docs app for Android devices and the web in order to make lengthy documents easier to navigate. On Android handsets, pressing the navigation slider on the right side of the screen will show the document's overall structure, such as page breaks, headings, or subheads, so users can quickly jump to those segments of the document. Similarly, on the web, users will see the document's structure appear in the left margin to aid navigation. The new nav panel will reach Google Docs for Android and the web in an update over the days ahead. Google didn't immediately say if the feature will reach iOS devices.
