Content from Google

You can easily include live documents from your Google Drive, the results of a quick Google image, video or map search.

Content from Google Drive

You can attach live documents from your Google Drive.

  1. Create a new widget, or select the widget you want to attach content to.
  2. Click the cloud from the properties panel, and select "Google Drive". Note on touch devices you might have to repeat this step.
  3. Sign in to your Google account if prompted (don't worry, you are logging in to Google directly - we do not receive your login details)
  4. Locate the file you want to attach.
  5. Click 'Select', and after a moment or two, click 'Cancel' to close the dialog (this is a known issue)

The file will not be uploaded to fltspc, only linked to your Google Drive copy. That means if you delete the file, the link will no longer work. If you update the file, clicking the name in fltspc will show you the latest version. You might need to reload fltspc for the widget itself to be visually updated.

Other people can only see the document if they have permission - this is not related to fltspc passes or permission.

Live embedded content won't appear if your widget is too small
