I have an app on my phone that uploads a file from my phone to my Google Drive account. Prior to uploading that file, I enter text information to a "description" field that the app provides for that file .

From a "Desktop" version of the Chrome browser, when I view the file in my Google Drive files area, I must Right-Click the file and select, "View Details" (see attached image). Then, in the browser, a Right Sidebar appears and in the "Details" tab, you can see the text "description" [Metadata] that I had entered from the app on my phone ("File notes show up here" in the attached image).

How to Preserve File Metadata when Downloading from Google "Drive"

Google Drive Metadata File Description
Background:  I'm working with a small school who is interested in bringing live text into their athletic streams.  The most cost effective yet easily editable solution for students is to use a Google Sheet.  The solution is great, but now they've evolved to wanting the "white" in the cell background to become transparent.

Question:  I'm working with OBS studio (  
I use a local Chrome browser source going to a Google Sheet as one of my media layers.   Works great.

The next thing I need to do is make the white background of a cell(s) to be transparent rather than the classic "white".  I've attempted a ChromaKey filter on the source and unfortunately I can't get the ChromaKey to filter on the browser source.

It has been mentioned to use CSS and change the "white" to "transparent".  Maybe even simply using the inspect aspect of Chrome for the local browser.

Is this something easily attainable to someone starting from scratch on the subject?

I currently upload finish line pictures from races I time to Google + and share the gallery with race finishers so they can find their picture.  I would like to take that a step further and share each finishers individual picture with them.  I believe Google Vision has the technology to do that...albeit for a pairing participant bib number with bib in the image.  Is anyone familiar enough with this api to give me some direction as to how to do this?  Also, any idea how this product is priced?

We have a shared document on It's owned by a manager (call him Joe) who shared the doc with me.

When I make changes, it appears that Joe receives an email notification. (He mentioned it happened when I resolved a comment, and I suspect it would occur for other changes as well.)

However, when Joe makes a change (add a comment, add a line of text), I do not receive any emails.

On, I checked Settings --> Notifications, and saw the following, indicating I expect to receive emails.
Google Drive Notifications Options
Could it be:
  • Should I be looking at options within instead of If so, please advise how I can find these options.
  • Is the document owner the only person who receives notifications?
  • Something else?

I have a Google Line chart, looks and works perfectly on desktop. However, to make it more mobile friendly, I'd like to put it inside a scrolling div (css = overflow:scoll) - allowing the user to still see all of the content at the normal size and click to display tooltips.

When implementing this, the onclick events (to display the tooltips) only work in the first part of the graph. Basically all the the content in the overflow is unclickable.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?
