It appears to be a well-documented fact that Google Docs does not work when using Pentadactyl (I believe it's some kind of focusing issue).
I've spent many hours googling about this, and have yet to find a working solution.
The best solution I've found is
:autocmd LocationChange 'https://docs.google.com/*' :normal! <C-z> (from
How to disable Pentadactyl per site?), but that has multiple issues:
- It disables Pentadactyl altogether, which is a bit heavy-handed and makes it impossible to use for example
- When switching tabs back and forth a few times, this "solution" stops working altogether, requiring me to reload the page.
- It's just a workaround, not a proper solution.
