Christine from the Google Docs team posted an announcement in the Google Docs Help discussion area that two bugs have been fixed.
- The first bug was that published Google spreadsheets were becoming unpublished by themselves. This should now be resolved.
- The second bug was that 'Share with the world'/''Let anyone view without signing in' did not work, now it does.
Google Docs is very often plagued with bugs, some minor and some serious. The last major security bug shared private documents with others. Yet, Google and the US Government wants you to use Google Health to share your private medical history with others.
