Google said Monday it is introducing a range of updates that will make PDF files converted into Google Docs better. With the new update, users will see improvements in image imports, text styles and formatting and layout conversion.

Here are the key improvements the new update is bringing:

  • Text styles and formattings such as importing underline and strikethrough, background color, and more fonts.
  • Layout conversion, including support for multi-column layouts, custom page sizes, tables with borders, and improved content ordering.

To convert PDF and photo files to text, head over to "drive.google.com" on your computer and follow these steps:

  • Click the "Open with Google Docs" option
  • The image file will be converted to a Google Doc
