When you open any document, Google Docs shows the ruler by default. These verticle and horizontal rulers help draft documents, like adjustments in the indent and document margin.
By mistake, the ruler can be hidden, and it can cause some problems in the document formatting.
How do you show the Ruler in Google Docs?
- Open any document in Google Docs.
- Find “View” in the menu bar and tap on it.
- Check “Show ruler.”
By following these steps, the ruler will appear immediately.
Hide Ruler in documents
- Tap on “View” in the menu bar.
- Uncheck “Show Ruler”.
The ruler will disappear from the documents. For United States users, the ruler’s imperial measurement is in inches. To change the measurement unit, follow our guide: “Change the measurement unit from inches to centimeters in Google Docs.“
