Working with the spreadsheet tool in google docs has been a little frustrating. There are limited embedding options (compared with a service like YouTube). Here are three versions of the same pie chart.
Below is the embedded chart picture from a spreadsheet in my google account. I cannot change the size and the color options for the chart are very limited. Worst of all, I lose the interactive nature of the google chart object. This is just a picture. That's it.
What should be an interactive chart (below), is merely a red line which reads "Pie chart should have a first column of type string". It seems to be able to produce an image correctly in the first example, and in the sheet within the google doc itself, but not here. I was not able to find a fix to this even after using the google...
Finally I downloaded a PNG file from the google doc and have uploaded that into this WordPress Blog's media library. It is the same size as the embedded picture. I'm not sure why google selected 600 pixels as a width for this, but that's what you see, since there are no options to change it.
