pagination and native printing are available with google docs

Pagination adds visual page breaks while editing documents, so that one can see how many pages of the document are actually finished.This is a very useful feature which was absent until now in google docs.Recently google added this feature.
Pagination is rolling out now and should be available to everyone by the end of the day.

Pagination adds visual page breaks while you’re editing your documents, so now you can see how many pages of that report you’ve actually finished. Because we’re able to show you individual pages, we can improve the way other features work too: headers now show up at the top of each page instead of just at the top of your doc, manual page breaks actually move text onto a new page and footnotes appear at the bottom of the pages themselves.
Though if anybody wanted to use the continuous view,(s)he needed to activate the 'compact' view from the view menu.
In addition to this,or should we say because of this,native printing is also available now in google doc.until recently,to print a document from google doc,we have to take a .pdf of the file concerned from google doc and then take a print out of the file-it was a two stage procedure.
Now due to availability of 'native printing',the print out could be taken directly from the google doc.Though to use this feature,user must use chromium.No other web browser is supported at present.
