Embedding dynamic tables in a Webflow rich text element

As of Jan 2021, Webflow does not support HTML tables as an element, or as content within its rich text editor. What should you do when you need to embed dynamic table content? Here's a workaround I've found using Google Slides.

The basic process is;

  1. Create a Google Slide document in any Google Drive account
  2. Make certain the document or its folder is public, so that "anyone with the link can view."
  3. In your Webflow rich text, drop in an embed item
  4. Paste in an HTML IMG element ( use angled brackets, not square )
    [ img src=" YOUR URL " ]
  5. Insert your URL which will look something like this-
    https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/ ** DOCUMENT ID ** /export/png
