Google Docs: Choose Pageless Over Print Layout


It’s common practice to edit/read Google Docs in Print Layout view. However, do you print all of your Google Docs? I often create Google Docs I never intend to print, but page breaks and margins often divide up text and images in ways that are less than idea.

If you have a Google Doc that will always be viewed digitally, you can now remove the restrictions of the past. Google calls this new layout Pageless


Change Google Doc to a Pageless Format.

Unlike Print Layout you won’t find Pageless under the View menu. Instead it is located in Page Setup

  1. Click File
  2. Click Page Setup
  1. Now click Pageless
  2. Click OK

Now your will no longer see the page breaks and you document will look more like a webpage than a Google Doc. However, unlike a webpage, you still have the full Google Docs toolbar and collaboration tools.
