I think, somehow I added three rows to our shared calendar. No idea how, I was adding lines from/to dependent actions.
- I want to delete the rows, I think, but when I attempt to select the rows the entire calendar moves.
- I’m assuming I need to unlock something. I’ve found 3 options to unlock, and have selected each of them. None has allowed me to select anything. I’m also concerned that just selecting random unlocks is helping to stabilize our calendar, but have no idea what they do
- What do I need to do to remove the additional rows?
- What do the various Lock/Unlock options actually do?
It might help the community respond if you could confirm which Miro template you are using for the shared calendar.
I didn’t create the calendar, I believe Product Roadmap.
What difference does the template make in regards to editing a grid?
It’s important to understand what objects were used to make up the calendar. For example, if it was the table widget instead of the grid, different rules would apply.
If it is a grid and if the grid is not locked then when you hover over the edges of the grid object (near a row or column) you should see a grey “...” button popup. When you click on it, you’ll get a toolbar which will include the trash can icon for deleting the row or column.
You can’t lock individual rows or columns in a grid - the lock/unlock function applies to the grid as a whole.
Best answer I can give is its a grid overlay, looks like a table.
When I hover near the edges of the grid, absolutely nothing happens.
If I right click off the grid, I receive a dropdown
Add sticky note
Set start view
Set current view as start
Snap objects (checked)
Show grid (checked)
Those options are part of the generic context menu you get when you are clicking in “empty” space on a Miro board.
If you click a cell in the grid for one of the rows or columns you wish to delete such that it becomes greyed out, then click on the “...” menu in the toolbar which pops up there are options to delete the row or column that cell belongs to (see below).
When I attempt to right click the cell, I receive a dropdown
I do not receive the toolbar you indicated. I attempted to select Delete and nothing happened that I could see. I did select undo arrow just in case.
It might help if you include a screenshot of what you are seeing when you click on any cell in the table. Miro also has a table object which might be what that calendar is based on - that object has much less functionality than the grid object but does still provide the ability to delete rows or columns.
This is what the old table object’s menu looked like:
Sorry, the 6 cells on the LEFT, not right.
I can’t tell if my submissions are being sent, I added an image, selected send but see no indication my reply was actually submitted.
Is there anything special I need to do to send images?
You are correct, when I right click, I receive the dropdown in your response above.
Odd experience, I was in Miro reviewing sticky notes, not trying to make any changes. When I expanded the calendar I saw that 3 additional rows had been added. When I selected Undo symbol they disappeared. I have no idea how reviewing sticky’s added rows. I’m becoming very frustrated with this tool. :)
Assuming the calendar is using the old Table object, then when you click on the Edit button (which you can see in my screenshot), it will enable you to edit the table in a separate, dedicated view. Select the full row which you wish to delete and click the trashcan icon to delete it.
I right clicked, and did not receive the expected dropdown, so I closed my Miro connection and then reopened IE. When I opened Miro the entire calendar has now moved from where it was originally, and some of the sticky’s moved somewhere else. It’s a complete mess, and I had no idea what closing and reopening the tool would do.
I’m going to leave it alone for a while, I can’t afford to do any more damage. I have no idea how this tool works, or doesn’t work, and it just doesn’t seem the least bit logical.
Let me ask this another way, I believe I’m incorrect that I need to delete anything. Look at the image below, I believe I lengthened the cells, and I need to compress them to resolve the issue, see image. When I select unlock, I’m able to move the entire grid, but can’t affect individual cells. Does that make more sense?
I can’t see any way to change the width or height of a column or row using the old table object, so I’ve got to assume that this is a grid of some kind.
Is there any type of label just above the top left of the overall table which might help confirm that it is, in fact, a grid? If it is a grid there would also be a “Send feedback” link at the bottom right as you can see in my example below.
Fixed it, with the help of another employee.
Kiron, I really appreciated all of your feedback, thank you
I’m having the same kind of problem. Somehow extra columns and rows were added to my table, which I didn’t want or intentionally do. I can’t select rows or columns in my table to delete them. It’s a big waste of time. I’m really missing MS Office right now.
What do you see when you click on a cell and bring up the “…” menu? Do you not have the options below? Is it possible the table is locked and just needs to be unlocked?
Thanks for your help. I finally figured out how to do what I needed to do, but it was a frustrating waste of time in a busy day.
if you can't see the option to delete columns and rows, try resize the table (you cannot select single cell on small table)
Small table - Cannot select single cell. No options to delete rows and columns
Resized table - You can select single cell and remove row or column
I understand, how to remove a single row. But the same does not work for multiple rows. Is it really necessary to repeat the procedure row by row?
Thanks for your help.
You should be able to use Shift-Click or Ctrl-Click to select multiple rows when you hover over the vertical grey “...” indicator next to a row. By doing that you will select them, and then can use the trash can tool to delete them.
Miro allows tables to be created with multiple rows/columns. However Miro does not allow multiple rows to be deleted. i.e. the user can only delete a row/column at a time.
This is tedious and time consuming.
We need keyboard short cut to remove row or column. i.e. in
