I have a large notebook with many text cells some containing images and I need to import it to a google document that is editable. (so not pdf or html). So far no luck!

Exporting to rich text format and then uploading causes a high level of degradation of the notebook's images.

Note: I don't know how to upload a google doc from within Mathematica (and I don't believe this is possible), even though it's listed here as a service:

In[1]:= $EmbeddableServices

Out[1]= {"GoogleDocs", "GoogleForms", "GoogleSheets", "GoogleSlides", \
"Imgur", "SoundCloud", "Vimeo", "Vine", "YouTube"}

So I had to manually upload the .rtf export of the notebook manually in a browser. This is what the notebook's contents look like after export and upload:

The original notebook has the high resolution images that look like this:

  • $\begingroup$ I'm guessing it's scaling the images (poorly) before exporting them... make them bigger, play with the image mode etc (right click)? $\endgroup$ – Lucas Apr 13 '16 at 3:01
  • $\begingroup$ Nah, they're definitely not the same resolution, can't even read the text... $\endgroup$ – M.R. Apr 13 '16 at 3:07
  • $\begingroup$ Could you please post code or menu option even if it is obvious for those who are on different M versions or OS versions. $\endgroup$ – William Apr 13 '16 at 3:48
  • $\begingroup$ It would be good to have a minimal example and an algorithm to reproduce the problem. $\endgroup$ – Kuba Apr 13 '16 at 7:13
  • $\begingroup$ @Kuba, Of course but the problem is I can't make an example - sure I could create a notebook with an image then try to get the notebook into google docs for you, but I don't have your credentials. $\endgroup$ – M.R. Apr 13 '16 at 16:16
