Improving table placements in Google Docs

What’s changing

Earlier this year, we rolled out improvements to the formatting and customization options for tables of contents and reorganized the options included in the table properties sidebar in Google Docs. 

Today, we’re introducing improved table positioning options for documents set in pages format. These features add more flexibility and control over the layout of text with tables in Docs, allowing you to: 
  • Drag tables in a document and place them directly where you want 
  • Wrap content around a table on a page. The wrap direction (left, right, both sides) and margin from the surrounding text can be specified 
  • Set a fixed position for a table on a page 
  • Provide quick layouts to instantly move a table to a preset position on a page 
Additionally, we’ve improved the import/export of Microsoft Word documents with tables so your documents remain consistent.
