Resize multiple shapes to the same size (not stickies)

Hi, is there a way for me to resize multiple shapes to the same size? We didn’t think through our process thoroughly enough at the start, and now have 1000+ shapes that need to be resized to the same size for clarity. 

If there is no feature for it, is there a way to script it? I’ve done similar scripts for illustrator but don’t know how I would go about running them within Miro.

@Jakob -

In your particular case are these all the same sort of shape - it is hard to make out from the image? If so, one approach might be to select all of them, transform them into sticky notes, set the sticky note size and then transform them back into the original shape.

@Kiron Bondale Thank you, this works! Yes, they are all the same shape, rectangle with rounded corners. Unfortunately, the texts lose their formatting when transferred to stickies, so I still need to go through every element to correct that. It’s much less work than resizing all manually though.

would be nice to have this as a feature and not a workaround :)

This should be a feature.  I don’t want to have to make something a stickie in order to resize it.  There are lots of shapes available in Miro and when making rounded rectangles I would like to make them all the same height.  This is a standard feature in similar tools.

Someone with the right development background and experience should be able to create a simple web-plugin in a few hours that would basically allow someone to set the width and height of a selected group of shapes or sticky notes.

Have a developer check out the Miro Developer Platform documentation for more info.

@Jakob Have you tried SHIFT + selecting the items and dragging the box that appears around the grouped items? Just had the same issue and it resized all manner of objects equally. Hope this helps!
