RELEASE NOTES v.1.1.6 Fixed a bug that prevented the extension from working in the latest version of Google Docs THEMES FOR EVERY SITUATION Pick the style that suits you, whether it's the dark mode suitable for late night prose, sepia for caffeine-fueled poems, or the clean gray default gray theme. More are planned for the future. NOTES This extension requires access to change how Google Docs works, but your document is safe.

Latest reviews (2019-12-06) Garth Plamping: Update :) The problem is fixed. Thank you. My eyes thank you. --------------------------------------------------------------- I have loved this extension until today. Chrome says the extension is on, but the black square I click on is gone. What happened? Please fix! (2019-12-01) JT Marino: Perfect! This is exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks so much for making this!!! (2019-11-06) Rion Sen: Just an amazing extension. I'm glad I came across this. Will write a detailed review later. (2019-11-06) curusarn: This is the best dark mode for Google docs I've found. Good thing is that it's likely not going to break when google changes something about the docs because it's simple. (2019-11-04) Eric Rooney: Really needed this. I was going "snow blind" reading Google docs. (2019-10-21) Rowan Kula: Absolutely fantastic. Does exactly what it says on the tin. It makes google documents a less cluttered environment, and even includes various dark themes to help avoid eye strain. Couldn't ask for anything better. An easy 5 stars. (2019-10-05) Varun Khandare: This is exactly what I was looking for. Works with Google Docs, Dark theme options and a distraction-free writing mode, it's all here! (2019-09-29) Robert Storm: Absolutely what I've been looking for! Thanks 3000. (2019-09-16) Clayton Kale: Just what I needed for the Dark theme alone! (2019-06-15) Rex Koontz: Simple and effective--turns google docs into a great focus word processor. Nothing on the screen to distract you from the task at hand. Easy to adjust for your needs. My only desire: a way to focus on just one paragraph, or even one sentence, and have the rest of the text turn darker (like some other focus apps). (2019-06-11) Michel Basilieres: Great idea, but it's now broken. It doesn't hide the right-hand sidebar or the new widget to show or hide the Outline. Needs an update. (2019-04-14) Jakub Krejčí: Exactly what I was missing in my GDocs... and some more. Good job and Thank You! (2019-04-04) Val: Outstanding, turns google docs into an amazing writing tool. Highly recommended. (2019-03-26) RickToons Extra: It works really well! Does exactly what it's been designed for. (2019-03-01) Evan Griffin: Thank god finally someone made this a reality. I've never been able to have such a successful writing session in years. Hope this helps me keep up the good habits! (2019-02-06) Nifty little extension. Does exactly what it says on the box. Retains key functionality like zoom but neatly tucked away in a nondescript corner. Love it. (2019-01-24) Ryan Miller: Cleans up docs much better than any others. (2018-12-27) Bruno: amazing. thanks. (2018-12-17) Geoff Ruscoe: This is excellent. Just what I was looking for. I'm not sure when this was originally available but you should have way more users of this extension than the 2217 currently shown as of today. Thank you very much for this. Google Docs just became my defacto "Word" application because of your effort... (Google are you listening... :) (2018-12-17) James Friendersom: Perfect for working on essays late at night. Finally won't blind myself. Also this does not make tables in google docs black so you may have to paste stuff somewhere else or you won't be able to read it. (2018-11-12) Ross Beane: This is a game changer for me and makes google docs a totally new writing experience. (2018-10-29) Kat North: I adore this extension. This extension does exactly what I need; simple, easy, clutter free, no sync worries. Thank you! (2018-08-29) nicolas gonzalez: worx gr8 m8. (2018-08-03) Jan Kempeneers: Nice! Have been looking for this for a while, thanks! (2018-07-31) John Walsh: Fantastic! There is something magical when the only thing on your screen is the words. Sometimes the best features are unlocked by removing not adding features; thank you, I never write without it on.
Latest issues (2019-11-27, v:1.1.5) Steve Doyle: Distraction free button has disappeared
I use your distraction free mode all the time. But today it disappeared! Need it back...bad!
(2019-11-26, v:1.1.5) Sini Rawr: Distraction Free Button
Today, the button in Google Docs that normally toggles Distraction Free mode vanished from my Google Docs on both my laptop and my desktop.
(2019-11-06, v:1.1.5) curusarn: Auto-hide ruler when activated
Ruler on the left side stays visible when ▣ is activated. I think it would be nice if it was automatically hidden when ▣ is activated.
(2019-07-15, v:1.1.5) Jen Bjorgaard: Options button grayed-out
Hi, I just downloaded your extension and am trying to get it to work. When I click on the extension button and try to select "options" as shown in your video, it is grayed out and won't let me. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you!
(2019-06-05, v:1.1.5) João Ribeiro da Silva: Request
Hello, first of all, let me congratulate you for this wonderful product. It's really great and it functions very well. I have just one suggestion/request: could you move the button to access the menu to the right? When you have a document with an outline, the button is mixed with the outline button. Perhaps if you move it to the right it would solve the problem. Thanks!
(2019-05-10, v:1.1.5) Gabriel Beeby: Great Tool! Appreciate your time building it!
I'm very keen to use this tool, but on download I get the message that the extension will be 'able to read and edit Gdocs'. Is that right? I can't see a privacy policy on the link. Can you link to the privacy policy and say more about what of the Gdocs will be viewable/editable/stored. Thanks
(2019-03-22, v:1.1.5) Google Sheets
Is there a way to make this work (make it go dark mode) on google sheets as well? Thanks!
(2019-03-15, v:1.1.5) Emily Wheeler: not working
I cant get it on my google docs. I have it downloaded and it's on my chrome extension thing but it doesn't show up in my google docs like it does in the video. I have restarted my computer , closed google docs and reopening it , refreshing the page and nothing is working. I have even tried to google a video on how to get it to work. Anyone know a solution to this ?
(2019-02-05, v:1.1.5) Header glitch
when entering distraction free mode the existing header disappears and cannot be accessed until switched back to normal mode AND "header" is clicked under the "insert" menu.
(2018-11-02, v:1.1.5) Kim Syvertsen: Google Spreadsheets?
Is it possible to use this extension in Sheets too?
