Hi Community,

Everything you need to create a great presentation or diagram is now right in Miro. Give your work a professional, polished look with alignment guides and dimensions. It’s now easier than ever to

  • Dimensions show the exact size of an object, space objects evenly or make them the same size
  • When turned on, guides appear as you drag an object on the board
  • Fine-tune your presentation designs, and ensure all your diagrams have consistency

Happy diagramming,

Great enhancement! This should address a lot of concerns users had raised in the past about being unable to do more precise drawings with Miro!

Is it possible to enter a direct numeric value of the object dimension?

This is a great start!

One “Bug” is that the feature doesn’t work with an ad-blocker enabled. I disabled the blocker for miro.com and then the feature works as expected

It’s a very nice to see how large a shape is becoming, but I would really like to type values in the blue box of in some menu item somewhere. Maybe by double-clicking the blue dimension box.

I’m guessing the values are pixels? Will we eventually also be getting mm dimensions as well?

I tested the A4 frame and reports 961x1359 as size. 

Presuming the values are pixels, I get a pixel value of 116,235 pixels/inch when I enter this pixel dimension in Photoshop and set the size to A4 dimension. That's a really uncommon value, is this a BUG? 









Creat to have object diemmnsions, but I too would like fame sizes be defined in mm not pixels.

Thanks, Paul

Setting size with pixels is not very helpful. 

  • Need inches & mm option.
  • Also need to be able to enter a value on-the-fly to change the size or set it on creation.

Any timing coming for this enhancement?
