Google Docs updated with three-headed bug

Print, import, and export snafu

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Google Docs users are having trouble printing, exporting, and importing files, following a recent update to the alleged Microsoft killer.

As reported by the IDG News Service, a Google employee has acknowledged the problems with a pair of posts to the company's Google Docs Help discussion forum. "We're currently looking into this issue," said a Google person identifying herself only as Marie. "Thanks a lot for your patience. I'll be providing any relevant updates."

The company also tells The Reg it's looking into the matter.

Earlier this week, Google began rolling out a handful of new tools to users of its web-based office suite. This included one tool that lets you share entire folders with other users, and another that lets you upload multiple files at the same time.

Google Docs is free to netizens everywhere, but it's also part of Google Apps, which Google is selling to businesses and other organizations for as much as $50 per user, per year.

Google acknowledged problems with a suite a day after it battled serious delays in the delivery of business email on its Postini message security and anti-spam system, and over the past several months, Google has taken more than a little heat over outages on its Gmail and News services. ®
