Tips for Using HTML in Ultra

  • Google Form: Go to Send and click the embed tab. Change the width to 775px and the height to 900px before copy/paste to the HTML block. 

  • Google Doc: Go to  File → Publish to the Web and Click Embed on the tabs in the pop-up. Google does not give your height and width control so once you have pasted the embed into the HMTL editor, you'll need to add this code width="775px" height="900px" frameborder="0" immediately after the src=URL but before the bracket closes.

  • Google Slides: Go to  File → Publish to the Web and Click Embed on the tabs in the pop-up. You can specify the slide size: We recommend Medium. You will need to adjust the width and height, however, as medium is actually too wide for the Ultra document to effectively display. Change the width to 775px and the height to 500px.

  • Microsoft Office 365: Go to File → Share → Embed. Set the width to 775px and the height to 900px before copy/paste to the HTML block.
