Lately I started using Google Docs to keep track of my TODO and couple of important files, as online version allows me to access and edit the documents at anytime from anywhere. Even though when I download the doc file back to my PC and when I open with Microsoft office, I see the alignment of pages are gone. Which is kind of annoy.
Coming to the actual problem, when I do not have the brower window in maximixed mode, and when I open the document (especially the XLS, spreadsheet) then it opens to fit the browser; that is good..but when I maximize the browser; the doc window does not auto scale to the browser; and with the recent release; it seemed to scale; but not 100%…and when it maximizes; the horizontal scroll is totally missing; which makes document un-editable beyond what it appears on the scrreen, unless you close and reopen it. Also, even when you resize, the document goes to its original state without the horizontal scrolling.
I am wondering, why Google did not even test this feature as this is supposed to be a basic feature that everyone uses it directly or indirectly, unless they didn’t tested this on IE7/Vista. The images below shows the problem in maximized and resized mode of IE7.
