    1. Hey bro, one question:
      1. How can I add the diapositives on the left side on Google docs with Images? So to me the heading outline appear only in text, so it's so much easy with image diapositives (as PowerPoint). I don't know if I'm explaining myself.

    2. Greetings,
      I have a question regarding tip number 5. on sharing.

      i would like to give out one link to students which CANNOT be editet, and one to teachers which CAN be edited. However these links appears to be the same. how do I tell the difference on the link?

    3. My favorite tool is Templates in g-mail. I write similar emails to clients often. I can store paragraph clauses in the Templates section which saves me time and keeps my messages accurate when stipulating terms and payments, etc.

    4. Hey sir, thanks for making such a helpful video. It helped me a lot and pretty sure many more students like me!
      I did have one doubt though… Can the creator of a google docs file know if another person copied text from their file? Would be glad to hear your response 😀

    5. Hi Sethi, thanks for your great videos on teaching. I have a specific question, hope it been a question of many. When you open an attached pdf file in google docs, you find the images missing. Any particular add-on that can bring the images in the right position in the Google Docs. Thanks again.

    6. I'm new to Google docs, I'm disable, and trying to use the free apps to create proposals for a company that I'm creating, but I don't see the type that I need, so I'm creating my own, I'm trying to put my company information in one side and the customers information on the other side at the same level, side by side, is it a way to do this, so both will appear on the top of the page before I start specifying the job that I'm performing,
