[RESOLVED] Copied objects don't get selected?

I often copy a few objects and then move the copies to a different place.

If I am not mistaken, objects that you Paste or Double used to be automatically Selected, so that I could move them directly(?), but now they don’t, and I have to Select them to move them. Can be dubious if they are spread out over the board...

@Rickard_Agerhäll - This is still the behaviour I am experiencing when copying-pasting two sticky notes (or duplicating via Ctrl-D). I have tested in Chrome, Firefox, and the Miro desktop app on Windows 10.

Can you provide more details?

  • Your OS
  • How you are accessing Miro
  • What object types you are copying?

A screenshot (or better yet, a video) of your steps/objects could help. Loom is free and easy to share a screen recording.

Hi!

I tested som more, it works fine in a browser, and in desktop if I copy or double Objects, but not when I copy or double only Sticky-notes. See video. (It works if I copy Sticky notes and objects...). Windows 10, Education License

@Rickard_Agerhäll - Thank you for the screen recording – the additional context helps. I see you are duplicating the objects in a Table, which already have some limitations, e.g., you cannot lock or group objects inside of a Table.

However, it is unclear if the fact that newly duplicated objects are not selected is a bug, limitation, or a gap. To find out, I will open a Miro support ticket and report back here with what the support team finds out.

Support team: As @Rickard_Agerhäll has pointed out, and you can see in this GIF, when a selected object is duplicated (either using Ctrl/Cmd-C, V or Ctrl/Cmd-D), the current behaviour when outside of a Table is that the newly created objects are automatically selected, making it easier to find and move them. But when inside of a Table, the new objects are not selected.

Is this a bug?

@Robert Johnson - You’re right, it’s the table that causes it! Good work!
(Jumped to the wrong conclusions there for a while...) 😅
