Diagramming: Add switch type for diagram shapes


I need a “switch type” for diagram shapes. e.g., I added a Terminator symbol but later want to change it to a Decision symbol.

Thanks @Robert Johnson. Would you be able to share a bit more details on the use case? In your example, would you want to change all terminator symbols to decision in one go?

Maybe. Maybe not. Last week I added a shape, but very soon after realized another shape would have been more appropriate. My expectation was that the existing object transformation functionality that I have grown accustomed to in Miro for years would be available to me - I was rather shocked it was not. I had to delete the shape, which deleted to lines, add the new shape, and another connection line.


Thanks for clarifying. I presume you were trying to swap the shape to a shape that’s not a basic shape, correct? 

This is indeed something we’re not yet supporting but we do have it on our radar.

Correct.


This is a big need for me also.  Collaborators will drop stickies on the diagram, that end up needing to be integrated in to Flowcharts and BPMN and it’s a lot of extra clicks vs. with basic shapes or cards it’s super easy.  Would be amazing to have the same functionality with additional shape packs.
