- In the window that opens choose embed from the vertical ellipsis menu.
- copy the embed code and paste into the editor in the Text view.
- on saving it will be converted into a shortcode like this:
[googleapps domain="drive" dir="file/d/1H-oJO4UbdAuxXRYCFEJJo-ZwYKA4CR0C/preview" query="" width="640" height="480" /]
