How to print and download google docs
Print your document
To print your document do one of the following options:
- Click File > Print.
- Click .
In the preview that appears, you can scroll through your document on the right, or choose print options on the left.
Download versions in other formats
To download your document so it can be opened by other programs, click File > Download as and choose one of the following formats:
- Microsoft Word (.docx)
- OpenDocument Format (.odt)
- Rich Text Format (.rtf)
- PDF Document (.pdf)
- Plain text (.txt)
- Web page (.html, zipped)
Copying a document is useful for creating templates. For example, if you write a lot of proposals, you can make copies of one proposal and then update each copy for a new project without having to format it again.
To make a copy of your document, click File > Make a copy. You can rename this copy and optionally share it with the same collaborators.
If you need to collaborate with someone on your document in a different program or format, such as Word or PDF, you can email it as an attachment. However, this sends a copy of the document instead of sharing the original, so you won’t be able to use Doc’s collaboration tools.
- Click File > Email as attachment.
- Select a format.
- Enter the email addresses or Google Groups you want to send copies to.
- (Optional) Enter a message.
- Click .
