New Options for Positioning Tables in Text Documents

Google Workspace introduces enhanced options for positioning tables and text in Google Docs. You will now be able to:

  • Drag and drop tables within a document, placing them exactly where you want.
  • Position text around a table on a page, specifying alignment (left, right, center) and margin of the surrounding text.
  • Set a fixed position for a table on a page.
  • Apply quick layouts to instantly position a table to a pre-defined location on a page.

Additionally, Google improved the import/export of Microsoft Word documents with tables to ensure better consistency in the documents.
