KB1910051: Using MarkdownTableMaker for Google Sheets in iPadOS

In general, Google Sheets add-ons are available in Safari for iPadOS. However, the Google Sheets offline app for iPadOS must be first uninstalled.

When the Google Sheets app is installed, it handles all the spreadsheet documents automatically. To prevent this default handler behavior, the app must be uninstalled.

Removal of the Google Sheets offline app allows Google Drive spreadsheet documents to be opened within the full version of Google Sheets inside the Safari for iPadOS web browser.

All MarkdownTableMaker features work in Safari for iPadOS.

KB1909327: How do I add a YouTube video to my GitHub page??

You cannot embed a video into a GitHub Markdown page, but you can create a YouTube video thumbnail with a link.

MarkdownTableMaker handles the generation of YouTube video thumbnails automatically. Simply, enter the YouTube watch URL into the spreadsheet cell using the <<URL>> syntax.

For example, instead of using this watch URL with the video ID:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_ID

… use the <<URL>> syntax:

<<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_ID>>

The YouTube video thumbnail will be generated during Markdown table conversion.

The following is a side-by-side demonstration with the same URL:

  • the normal URL is treated as an ordinary link
  • the other <<URL>> with “template” notation is converted to a YouTube video thumbnail.

KB1909326: Does MarkdownTableMaker support images?

Yes. You must use the =IMAGE( ) function to call an image by using a valid URL. This image URL will be converted into corresponding Markdown syntax. Also, you can add a “note” to the spreadsheet cell, which will be converted to alt text or title text.
