Updating your Sheets

Google has updated its Drive spreadsheet application with faster performance, more cells, offline editing, no limits on how many cells you can copy & paste, and some added features we'll outline on the next pages.

If you decide to try the new Google Sheets, your new spreadsheets will use the updated interface going forward but existing sheets won't (as of now). Note that if you need API support, protected sheets and ranges, notifications or spell checks, don't upgrade now, since Google says these aren't ready yet.

To switch, head to the Editing tab in your Google Drive settings.
