New Formatting and Download Features in Gmail

Google has been updating its services on a regular basis which makes it the most updated and demanding service. Updates are necessary to compete with the advancing technology.

 

Recently Google has introduced new compose formatting and download mail options in the Consumer Gmail edition. Let’s see in detail what are the features that have been added and how they are useful.

 

Three New features in Gmail include :

 

  1. Ability to redo & undo added as a shortcut.

  2. Strikethrough feature added as a shortcut.

  3. Emails can be downloaded in the .EML format from the web.




Ability to redo & undo added as a shortcut

 

Undo and Redo are the two formatting features that are used widely to reverse the action performed. If we wish to remove or delete the actions performed then we UNDO it. And to reverse an UNDO action we do REDO. Google has added a shortcut to both the actions. There are also keyboard shortcuts for the functions. For UNDO - Ctrl + z, and for REDO - Ctrl + y.



Strikethrough feature added as a shortcut.

 

Strikethrough is an appealing and readable presentation of the words with a horizontal line through the center of the text. It looks like:  text like this. This type of presentation signifies two meanings one is it is a non-erasable text and another is the text is not meant for inclusion, i.e it is wrong. Google has added a shortcut for the strikethrough feature. The keyboard shortcut for the same is Shift + Alt + 5.









Emails can be downloaded in the .EML format from the web.

 

EML is a File extension for email. It contains the contents of the message, attachments, hyperlinks and linked attachments. They are normally stored in a plain ASCII text format. Google has allowed to download the emails in this format as this format is recognized by most of the email clients.

The most interesting feature of this option is that one can attach the downloaded emails in another email.
