Did Google Docs Change?

I noticed yesterday while trying to work with other Code4Libers on a document summarizing the Lightning Talks that the Save button had disappeared. Now this AM when I went to edit a personal document I only needed to make one small change and went to hit ‘Save & Close’ and had to wait for the auto-save before closing the document.

Google Docs Save

Has anyone else noticed this? Or seen documentation explaining why such an essential function has been removed?

  1. Yeah, confusion all around. I was really happy when I discovered the little disc-icon on the left on the menu bar. “Just like word!” :-/
    But I do miss the old “save” and “save & Close” on the right:-)

  2. Yes, it looks like it’s been exiled to the disk icon and separate ‘Save’ and ‘Close’ options on the file menu. Does anybody know if Google has a blog or feed for their updates to the Docs applications?

  5. Yeah, I had the exact same reaction yesterday when I went to update my files. It was a strange and sudden change in my opinion. I also liked the save and close button.
    At least the save icon is still around.
