Using Libre Office Charts in Google Docs

Hey guys,

We had a number of students who wanted to know how to use a chart they made in Libre Office Calc or Open Office Calc in a Google Doc, Google Presentation, or a Google Spreadsheet.

Google Docs is, in our opinion, the best format for all of your school work, so it's a good idea for you to know how to do this, and there's more than one way to do it.

Turns out, it's easy!





If you follow this technique, you'll have a nice JPEG of your chart, and you can import it as an image into your Google Doc, Presentation, Drawing, or Spreadsheet. Works like a charm.

The above technique applies to the freshman Asus netbooks; if you are a sophomore or junior using Open Office, it's very similar. The main difference is that your Open Office Draw program is in the Graphics tab.
Thanks to Sunny for help with the video.

For those of you interested in recording your desktop, we used Record My Desktop to film the procedure; we then converted the video into Quicktime using www.online-convert.com. Then, using a desktop computer, we edited it using Camtasia Studio.
