Google Docs adds ability to see visual pages on screen

Google Docs adds classic word processing feature—pagination, the ability to see visual pages on  screen. This helps to improve how printing works in Google Docs. Pagination adds visual page breaks while  editing documents, so now we can see how many pages of that report we have actually finished. Because google docs is able to show you individual pages, Google docs also improve the way other features work too: headers now show up at the top of each page instead of just at the top of  doc, manual page breaks actually move text onto a new page and footnotes appear at the bottom of the pages themselves. If we prefer editing documents with a continuous layout, we can hide page breaks by selecting the “Compact” document view from the “View” menu.
