How to retain formatting for complex Google Docs

retain info google docs

As mentioned in our "Features & Limitations" article, complex Spreadsheets & Google Drawings might not retain their original formatting during a standard migration. If you would like to retain the formatting on these documents, we have a solution:

  1. Log into the old domain account
  2. Share your new domain account on the affected documents
  3. Inside each document (when logged in to your new domain account) click "File" and "Make a Copy."  This will make a new copy on your new domain that is not linked with the old domain.
  4. You can then share any users with the new version.

Note: we are currently developing the ability to do this programmatically. Our new version of our software will address this issue.
