What’s changing
We’re updating the way Google Docs renders documents. Over the course of the next several months, we’ll be migrating the underlying technical implementation of Docs from the current HTML-based rendering approach to a canvas-based approach to improve performance and improve consistency in how content appears across different platforms.

We don’t expect this change to impact the functionality of the features in Docs. However, this may impact some Chrome extensions, where they may no longer work as intended.

Why it’s important
Some Chrome extensions rely on the way the backend of a Google Doc is structured or specific bits of HTML to function properly. By moving away from HTML-based rendering to a canvas-based rendering, some Chrome extensions may not function as intended on docs.google.com and may need to be updated.

We’re rolling out improvements to the formatting and customization options for tables of contents in Google Docs. You now have the options to:
  • Toggle between three default styles
  • Toggle page numbers
  • Toggle tab leader styling (adds lines between a heading and the page number)
  • Include and indent headings based on levels
With these enhanced customizations, we hope this highly requested feature refines titles and headings to personalize the content of your document.

We’re also reorganizing the options included in the table properties sidebar in Docs to make it easier for you to find and utilize table formatting options. Upon adding or editing a table, you will notice a new “Table” section with alignment preferences and a new “Cell” section with clearer cell-specific formatting options within the table properties sidebar.
