Given its current state as an online-based word processor, Google Docs does not have the same level of features as Microsoft Word offers. But perhaps it’s for good, most of the time, the basic features on the service are sufficient to create complete documents.

We can modify the style, text size, add headings, change paper size, and of course, adjusting the margins — something that we are going to look a bit deeper into in this article.
