About Doc Variables:

Doc Variables allow you to quickly add a variable to any document in any style.  A sidebar interface generates a form with all your variables.  Fill in the form and apply the variables to generate a new document.   Great tool for creating templates that can be shared across a team to create consistent output (e.g. contracts, invoices, or client reports).  Works with Google Docs and Google Slides.

Latest Feature: New user interface!  We've integrated the Semantic UI to give the Doc Variables a cleaner and updated look.  We have also included the following new features:

- References (reference external data)
- Hidden Fields
- Constants

Note: Doc Variables remains free, but non-subscribers will be given a delay prior to applying variables.  If you find it useful, please consider subscribing.

Example Variable Syntaxes:

${Variable Name}
${Variable Name::~Default Value} ("Default Value" will be pre-filled)
${Textarea Name::textarea::~Add this text as default content.}
${Select Variable::options::One,~Two,Three} (Two will be selected)
${Other Doc::file} (Imports a separate document)
${My Logo::image::width=200,height=200} (Adds an image from your drive with the width of 200 and height of 200)
