Start a new document from Gmail

Last month, we announced a Google Docs gadget as a new feature in Gmail Labs. Today, I wanted to let you know about another Docs feature in Gmail Labs called "Create a Document". It gives you the ability to 1) turn an email (with all of its replies) into a Google document and 2) create a new blank document using a keyboard shortcut: 'g' and then 'w'.

Read more about this new feature on the Gmail blog.

Then try it out by going to the Gmail Labs tab under Settings, selecting "Enable" next to "Create a document" and hitting "Save Changes" at the bottom. Oh, and if you want to use that new keyboard shortcut, remember that you'll need to have keyboard shortcuts turned "on" in your General settings in Gmail.
