Google today launched a new web clipboard that improves copy and paste in Google Docs.
This new clipboard temporarily stores items users have copied in the cloud, then allows users to paste them with proper formatting into other Google Docs.
"Say you work for a cheese company and you've created a table in a Google spreadsheet summarizing cheese sales. You want to present the results to your coworkers using a Google presentation. Now, you can just select your cells in the spreadsheet and copy them using the new clipboard menu," Ben Margolin, Engineer, Google Docs explained.
The new web clipboard lets users copy content between documents, spreadsheets and presentations more easily. Note that while items in a users' web clipboard are available across browsers and across sessions, they expire after a month.
