How to fix Google Docs error with duplicated text for users

Google Docs is one of Google's online word processing applications. It allows users to create, edit and present text easily on the Internet. Google Docs works based on the user's Google login account associated with the server. All content edited on Google Docs will be automatically saved by this tool.

A special feature is that this tool allows users to create documents online and share them for multiple people to view and edit at the same time. Besides, Google Docs also supports flexible editing when there is no network connection. However, Google Docs also has the disadvantage that users can often encounter some formatting problems, leading to errors in the process of using Google Docs. In today's post we will talk about error duplicating text in Google Docs.

Error duplicating text in Google Docs

If you're having problems with "duplicate text" in Google Docs, here are some suggestions to fix it:

  • Check and fix errors on the browser: Sometimes the problem of duplicating text occurs due to a display error in the browser. Try restarting the browser or using another browser to see if the problem persists.
  • Consider using the “View HTML” view: In Google Docs, this can be done by clicking “File” and then selecting “View HTML”. This view allows you to edit the source code of the document. However, be aware that editing the source code can affect the structure and format of the document. Try removing any superfluous elements, like keyboard closing tags or tags.
  • Remove unwanted formatting: Select the duplicated text and select “Clear Formatting” from the formatting menu. This will remove any unwanted formatting that is affecting the text.
  • Copy and paste the content: Copy the contents of the document to a new document or another computer and see if the problem persists. Otherwise, you can use new text to replace the duplicated document.
  • Contact Google support: If the above measures don't work or you need in-depth assistance, contact Google support for detailed and personalized help for your case.

The above measures are only suggestions and do not guarantee to completely fix the problem so that you can refer to and partially fix the double text error in Google Docs. Each situation can be different, so try each and find the one that works for you.
