Someone may ask: why don’t you use Google Docs to edit document online.
It’s it say sometimes functions of Google Docs or Google Slide is a bit of limited due to they are web app. Especially the Google Slide, there are only a few templates and animations on it.
Plus Google Docs is not very friendly for some edler people. Sometime you can’t quiclty find the button on their user surface.
