Google Docs Margin Errors
2
Hi! I opened my Google Docs today only to find out that the right margin is completely messed up, words are running off the end of the page to disappear forever. I also cannot highlight anything or move the cursor. All of the margins are set to 1 inch but clearly that isn't happening, I've refreshed, I've logged out and back in again, I've turned restarted my laptop, and nothing appears to be working. Would really appreciate any help. It currently looks like this:

I have the same problem! I tried clearing my cache as well as disabling all my extensions and it's still like this even if I refresh. I'm hoping it's just a bug but it's really annoying..

People on reddit are saying that its happening only on chrome but seems to be working on alternative browsers. I just tried it on microsoft edge and the issue went away.

To those who are having same issue as myself, if you need urgent fix and are using google chrome switch to firefox as it works fine on there from what I have experienced! Hope it helps others as well

Same issue for me too - every Google doc of mine I've checked so far (using Chrome). Tried quitting Chrome and restarting my computer (pretty new iMac).

Others are saying that this is specific to Chrome browsers. Please try to open your documents in Edge, Safari, or Firefox while this is being resolved. I'll post as soon as I get an update.

I disabled my adBlocker and Google Doc worked fine again. But still, hopefully there will be a fix because not having adBlocker on is very annoying...

I turned it off for Google Doc, but still kept it on for other websites and so far everything seems to be working fine.

I completely reset my Chrome browser and it seems to have fixed everything for now.

If you have not done this yet, please try the general troubleshooting instructions provided in the Help Center.
 
First, I would try using an incognito window to see if this resolves the issue. Second, if that doesn't work, please disable any ad-blockers that you may be using (I know, that stinks) to see if that is causing the issue. If neither of those options work, please continue with the other troubleshooting steps. 
 
This issue might also be resolved by disabling hardware acceleration for your browser:
For Chrome: From chrome://settings/ under Advanced > System > Disable Hardware Acceleration 
If that doesn't fix it, I would recommend re-enabling it so that performance doesn't suffer in other sites.
 
Please report in with any steps that appear to work for you. If turning off an extension is the resolution, please tell us specifically what extension is behaving poorly. 
 
(T.D. can you share what extension you were using?)

Amplifying that disabling adblocker fixed the issue for me in Chrome.

I turned off Adblocker plus while using chrome broswer and the issue went away. Turning off hardware acceleration with adblock plus still on also seemed to work.

I realised it was my Adblock Plus chrome extension creating this issue for me. I switched this off, refreshed my google docs and now my google docs work fine!! Guess I have to source for a new AdBlock extension...

I also have the same problem. It works after turning off the ad-blocker. But is there any long-term solution?
marked this as an answer
Relevant Answer
I'm having the same issue. It does seem to be the AdBlock extension, because when I pause it on a particular document, it reverts to normal, while other documents with AdBlock unpaused continue to have the problem.

So you don't have to disable AdBlock entirely--pausing it on individual documents and reloading them also solves the problem at least temporarily. 

Interestingly, AdBlock is also preventing me from reporting the problem--when I click on "Help Docs improve", nothing happens with AdBlock on. When I pause it, the dialog box pops up and takes a screenshot of my (now completely normal-looking) document. So add that to the list of symptoms, I guess.

Thank you, disabling the Ad Blocker worked for me

I have figured it out. The reason (for me) it was because of my Ad-Blocker Plugin. So I had to whitelist the site name "docs.google.com"...

Yup can confirm it's the adblocker. Definitely a very new issue too. Well good thing you can pause it on certain websites entirely.

Yes, disabled the ad blocker and the documents reformatted correctly. Furthermore, I could also get my cursor in the middle of lines, instead of only on the right margin.

This Answer is awesome and very helpful.
Ad blocker was the issue. so I disabled it for this site.
thanks you.​

If you use adblocker plus, disable ads for google docs. Go to your main documents page and click the ABP button and disable for all google docs. This will resolve the issue and you will still have adblocker active for all other sites

Huh. I thought it was just my computer. But yeah, it appears to be the AdBlock extensions.

I deactivated plugins and tried on my phone and through Chrome incognito mode. Luckily the margin problem is gone. Unfortunately a week's worth of edits have disappeared from certain documents and appear unrecoverable. This is a mess.

Incognito mode also solves the issue
