How to select multiple empty sticky notes

  1. I am copying many cells from excel into Miro, and there are lots of blank cells on different rows and columns which come through as empty sticky notes in Miro. Is there any way to quickly select all empty sticky notes within Miro?
  1. Side question, rather than the import from excel coming through as sticky notes is there any way they can come through as rectangles?

Thanks in advance,

Both of these would be good enhancement requests so you may wish to add them as wish list topics here: https://community.miro.com/wish-list-32

Hi @Nick Logan,

While there isn’t a “select all empty stickies” function in Miro, the only thing I can think of for quickly selecting the stickies is holding down Shift+drag over the empty stickies.

While not ideal, as you’ll have to select around the stickies with data you want to keep, it’s faster than deleting each empty sticky one by one.

Thank you @Michael Sohn for responding. Luckily I was aware of the shift+drag feature :thumbsup:

@Richard Solly Shift and Drag can be combined with shift and click as long as you keep the shift key pressed. This can help to select both regions an individual stickies or other objects.
