Support for rotated text, accounting number formats, and more in Google Sheets

13/03/2017

We’re working hard to ensure that Google Sheets meets your business needs. As part of that effort, we introduced several enterprise-friendly features that you’ve been asking for in Sheets on the web, Android, and iOS:

Rotated text

 

You can now rotate the text in a cell in Sheets (Format > Text rotation). This is especially useful when you need to fit long header names into thin columns, or when you simply want to fit more text on a single screen.

Accounting number formats

 

We made it easier to read your budgets, expense reports, and other spreadsheets containing monetary amounts by aligning the currency symbols within them (Format > Number > Accounting). We also made improvements to the way numbers, decimal points, and repeated characters line up to make them simpler to scan and analyze.

More border styles

 

You can now choose from several new border styles in Sheets, including various thicknesses and double borders, which are commonly used in financial statements like balance sheets (Toolbar > Borders > Border styles).

Additional improvements on mobile

 

In addition to the features described above, we also launched the following improvements to our mobile apps:

 

  • Support for using a mouse with the Sheets Android app

 

  • Ability to view and select existing custom colors in the Sheets Android app

 

  • Ability to drag and drop rows and columns in the Sheets Android and iOS apps

 

  • Formatting suggestions in Explore in the Sheets iOS app
