Why am I writing this post?
Sometimes, you may feel like editing some of the mails in your Gmail inbox, without willing to copy and paste the data.

In that case, Gmail gives you the provision to convert the information contained in any mail into a suitable Google doc.

You can edit the content in the mail as per your convenience, and convert it in PDF or word document format as per your requirements.

How to enable this service in your Gmail account?
Enabling this service in your Gmail account requires just making use of “Create a Document” apps in Google Labs.

 To visit Google labs, all you need to do is click on Settings. Then click on Labs as shown below.
