Google Docs is a great web_based project management system. It works by allowing you to create, edit, and collaborate on documents and projects.
I'm using a free white paper template in conjunction with Google Docs to produce PDF versions of the same documents. You can add images, change fonts, or font sizes, and change fonts.
The document will be read by a browser, and then I can add notes to the white paper template and save it as an MP4 file. Then the files are added to a folder on my desktop and access them via My Documents. They are easy to manage and I'm always able to open the files in either Microsoft Word or Excel.
I use this template on a regular basis for planning and document creation. Here's how you can use it for your own projects.
Start by adding a template to Google docs. This can be done through a web_based form. If you don't have this type of account, you can create one easily. Once you've created an account, go to the account section, and click 'Add new template'.
Next, fill out the form, and answer all the questions you need to. The first field you should enter is the name of the document, but you may also need to enter the name of the format you want it in (such as Word, PDF, TXT, or HTML). After you're done filling out the form, you're ready to save your template.
To save a template, click 'Save'. This will upload the template to your account and allow you to see the changes made when you save the file. Now you can save other people's templates from their Google account.
To see what your documents look like on a computer screen, go to your Google docs folder, and click the file that you want to edit. Click 'View on the web'. That way you can view the changes you've made.
You can edit the content of your document by typing. Type your message and click the text box. After you do this, save your document and you're ready to use your template for a presentation or article. You can also type a caption and then save your document.
You can also save as many versions of a document. Go to your account, click 'My documents', and click 'My Templates'. On the left side of the page, click 'New'. Choose the file you want to save and click 'save'.
If there's more than one version of the document, choose 'New from'. This will load up the file you want and let you edit the document until you have finished editing it.
Next, you'll need to find text boxes in the document you want to insert images into. You'll need to be careful to make sure you've found the correct box so that your image will load up correctly and appear the way you want it to.
For example, if you want your document to load up as a poster, then you need to find the boxes for the title and the body of the poster. Then click the text box next to the text box, select the image you want to use, click on the 'insert image' button, and then click on 'save'.
Now you need to find the code that lets you insert the title, the caption, and the background. Find the 'insert code' button, and click on the button to insert the code.
Once the code has been inserted, save your document and you're done. Your document will load up just as it would without the code, but it will also display your graphic on the title and the first caption.
The title should load up the same as the text box, while the caption will display the same as the text box. But the image will load up in the first text box. It will appear the way you wanted it to _ above the caption, beneath the title, or in the middle of the first caption.
If the image doesn't appear on the first caption, then you'll need to click the text box again. And choose 'hide caption'.
