Word Processors

A word processor is an electronic device or computer software application that performs the task of composition, editing, formatting, and sometimes printing of documents. Most modern word processors use a graphical user interface, and most are powerful systems consisting of one or more programs that can produce any arbitrary combination of images, graphics and text, the latter handled with type-setting capability. Typical features of a modern word processor include font application, spell checking, grammar checking, a built-in thesaurus, automatic text correction, Web integration, and HTML exporting, among others.

Today I learned: how to save an image that's used in a Google Doc.

I love Google Docs, but I've always been annoyed that there didn't seem to be a way to extract embedded images. But it turns out that downloading the document is a way to get them. Go to File > Download As > Web Page, which then gives you a .zip file with all the assets. Open that, go to the images directory, and voilà!—the document's images are all there for you!

Hope this helps you as much as it helped me :-)
