One of my new fav features is one I learned from @Rachel and @Max Harper in a recent convo -- changing the font for an entire board. (HOURS SAVED)

You got me curious. What this the method you are using?

  1. Can I change the formatting of all text boxes on the board at once?
    - Yes. Select all objects on the board (you can use Ctrl + A for Windows or Cmd + A for Mac), filter text, and change the formatting.

@Alexis Luscutoff -

Great question! For me, it’d have to be Bulk Mode for stickies. It’s a shame that it looks hidden under the sticky note color palette as lots of folks miss it.

Yes! @Kiron Bondale bulk mode rocks! Ooh also @Colleen Curtis I didn’t know you could change the font for an entire board. Miro’s out here making all of us professional designers! 

Smart alignment!

 

Also did you know that you can remove custom colors from the palette by just dragging them outside the palette? :bulb:

 

 

These both features are soooo helpful for those who love their boards to be clean and tidy :heart_eyes:

@Marina oooh I didn’t know you could remove custom colors that way. SO cool!

@Alexis Luscutoff 

When it comes to simple unsung hero gamechanger features… one in my top ten is that -

every Miro item has its own link.

A board, a note, a frame, ... now a team template have their own unique URLs. It makes collaborating in and out of the board seamless. 

 

Page up to bring to front and page back to send to back. 

 

 

@Max Harper curious to learn the other nine features from your top ten :wink:

@Marina just re-taught me smart alignment in a meeting the other day, what a gift for those of us that obsess over organization in the board! 

Smart alignment!

 

I agree!

Some of my favorites have already been mentioned, like layering or alignment. I also quite like the ability to pre-select a bunch of board elements and, since recently, being able to only select all sticky notes from this pre-selection.

Export as image or pdf … to share excerpts of a board e.g. in a mail, presentation or the intranet - especially with non-miro users.

Most of my favourites have already been mentioned! Like smart alignment, filter objects, all items in Miro has its own link.

I’m also IN LOVE with the presentation mode. Being able to say NO, NEVER AGAIN to Power Point is reason enough. :joy:

+1 for all items in Miro has its own link — helps a lot when you need to make sure your collaborators are looking at the right part of the board. Love that attention management feature!

@Anna Savina Very helpful, and extremely powerful when combined with the link to an object feature!

I just showed my partner this trick after reading this thread (he’s a big excel guy, just getting to know Miro) -- and he said “my life is now in Miro.” Game changer!
