Google has really been putting the work in lately as far as Gmail is concerned and it seems like new features have been rolling out every day. We were just barely getting used to the new task manager when SMS came out, and then before we knew it Google managed to surgically remove some of the pain that typically comes along with PDFs. Another day, another new feature as the G Team unwraps a handy new feature allowing Gmail users to convert an email to a new Google Doc with a single click. What’s more, when the feature is active it also enables a new keyboard shortcut that will open a new Doc with two quick keystrokes. The new doc creator can be activated from the Labs tab in settings, near the bottom of the ever-growing list. Ok Gmail team, good work but we’ll expect something new by Friday.
