Beautify Your Google Docs With New Templates

GdocstemplatesGoogle Docs has rolled out a new gallery of template designs for your spreadsheets, presentations, and documents.

There’s nothing quite so intimidating as the vast, pure whiteness of the blank page. To help you get past that frightening expanse of nothingness office apps have long included templates designed to make your docs look better, but also to help avoid the emptiness of starting.

However, while Google Docs can match most of the features of desktop apps, templates were one place it fell flat — there were a handful of templates, but for the most part they were ugly.

But there are now over 300 templates to choose from, many of which are actually quite nice designs (the dreaded Comic Sans themed template is nowhere to be seen). The new interface allows you to sort through templates based on kind or category. If you see something you like, you can preview it and then click the “Use this template” button to add it to your own documents.
