Trick: Double-clicking an object that is part of a group let's you move that single object

After using Miro for 3+ years, it’s still fun when you discover something you didn’t know.

In this example, I will group the four images and then double-click the top-left one (the cat with the fishbowl) and move it separate from the group. Next I will do the same with the puppy.


This saves me from Ctrl+Shift+G to ungroup, rearrange, and then Shift+drag to select all and Ctrl+G to group. 

I didn’t see any mention of this in the Structuring Board Content → Grouping Help Center article, but I expect it’s a feature and not a bug.

@Robert Johnson Love this one, has been helpful these few weeks. My discovery this week is that locked text-enabled elements can be made Bold/Unbold.

@Isman Tanuri - Nice! Maybe we should be starting a post titled “Who knew?!” :wink:
