5    Editing, Suggesting, and Viewing Modes - by clicking on the pencil pulldown tab in the upper right of a doc (pictured below), you can change from "Editing" mode to "Suggesting" mode which is similar to track changes in Word.  This allows for others to see what changes you are suggesting and then decide whether to accept or reject those changes.  You can also reply to a suggested change.  In order to view the final version of a document after suggested changes have been dealt with, switch to the "Viewing" mode.  
6    Help Menu - notice the "Help" tab.  By clicking this tab, you can see keyboard shortcuts, search for answers to a question about using docs, or select "Docs Help" to browse articles and forums for answers.
