But one thing really hurts my productivity, and I have (sadly) learned to work around it. Unfortunately, would-be converts to Google Docs get tripped up enough by this problem that they have abandoned the tool when they likely would have begun using it much more frequently:
Allow me to SAVE documents, spreadsheets drawings and presentations (etc) into a certain Google Docs folder from within the document I am working on!
This is logical, as it is the interface we are familiar with for EVERY OTHER DOCUMENT CREATION system out there:
- Create the item/document
- "Save As…" the document into a folder.
In Google Docs’ universe, I have to either:
- Create the folder first, browse to the folder and click "New…"
- Create the document, browse back to the Google Docs home page, find the file and drag/drop it to the folder I want it to be in.
