I am importing Google Sheet (with images embedded into cells with =image("img_url")) into Google Docs document but the images are not displayed, just the text data.

Any idea how to achieve that images would be displayed as well?


This is the link to my Google Sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13QgSblHXXN8ZwboBfUyDAMF1r2ohlQp-7f7DETophdg/edit?usp=sharing.

Image is included in cell A1 like this: =image("https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=1bblx_jApzyiJEdGyK3RIah_tVK01Iml1").

I am importing it in this Google Doc, page 3, under More content section: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IlXPGONrUmm7q3vXIDFcPT_qdqa-UT2bFD1M64rTaVo/edit?usp=sharing.

Text from Cell B1 is displayed but the image from Cell A1 is not.

to import a spreadsheet into docs, where spreadsheet contains an image embedded in a cell, is not supported by docs. the image can be only manually re-copied, but by updating the sheet it will get re-lost.

Copy image from Google Sheets to Google Docs
