Google Docs How To Guide: IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE SIGNING IN: - If you are trying to login to your Euclid Schools account, make sure that you are connecting through the Euclid Student Portal. You need to go to the website: http://ecast.euclid.k12.oh.us/studentportal and click on the “Connect to Google Docs” link. You will then be able to sign in. - If you are trying to sign in to a personal account, make sure you go to www.google.com and sign in. You then need to go to the “Documents” section. IF YOU NEED TO PAGE BREAK: - You only need to make a new page after your title page. To do this go to “Insert” on the Toolbar and then click on “Page Break for Printing”. When you have inserted a page break successfully, two lines will appear. - REMEMBER: the only time you need to page break is after your title page. When you are writing your actual paper you do not need to page break, a new page will be automatically created. IF YOU NEED TO CHECK HOW LONG YOUR PAPER IS: - Go to “File” and click on “Print Preview”. This will show you how your paper will look when it is printed. IF YOU NEED TO DOUBLE SPACE: - Highlight your text that you have already written. On the toolbar, go to “Format”. Then go to “Line Spacing” and click on “2.0”. IF YOU NEED TO CHECK SPELLING OR GRAMMAR: - When your words are underlined, something is grammatically incorrect. To fix, hold down the “Control” key on the keyboard (bottom row). As you are holding down the Control key, click on the underlined word with your mouse. Options to correct your mistake will pop up. - Remember, sometimes proper nouns (ie: names, places) will be underlined in red but they still may be spelled correctly. Double check this with your notes. TO SAVE: - GoogleDocs saves automatically, you do not need to do anything TO SHARE: - Go to the “Share” tab on the googledocs document (at the end of the toolbox) You will then be prompted to type in an address, my googledocs account is firstname.lastname@example.org.
