Page Creator Layout Change

"Page Creator" used to be underneath the Google Logo but now it is to the side of it, like with the Google Book Search Logo. Also I don't know what it is but the layout in List view looks different (I use list view all the time).

In design view the stuff that was at the side is now in a "tool bar" at the top. Can't find any new features though.

Also you can't seem to right click the page links in List View on the main page but can on the URL, and pages that have been changed since last time it was published are counted as "in revision".

I think it's a nice change – much more space for the page. It also looks less cluttered apart from the clumsy "Give feedback on experimental features"

The stuffs from left side of the edit mode page has moved to the top... is this new?

Wow that's so much better. Completely eliminates browser window height problems. Makes you wonder why it was how it was in the first place...

Sorry, I wasn't sure what that was called so I said Design View. Is there an official name for it?

Apparenty a trend – all new logos from Google looks like that one.

Does this look like a move to make it look and feel like Docs & Spreadsheets to anyone else?

Another step towards "Google Office"?

I totally agree. And i don't think they can afford to delay this another year. 2007 is our year.

Weird, I'm not seeing any differences at all. My controls are all still on the left side. What gives?

2 ImJasonH: Just click on "Enable experimental features" in settings...

If you resize the browser window to a certain size, the toolbar will get mess up.

I wouldn't really call that messed up, compared to the earlier page creator version. Even on full screen rez, you couldn't see some of the buttons.

I noticed this the other day, and then within a few hours, they rolled it out to Google Apps for your domain
