Select and Delete rows
I think, somehow I added three rows to our shared calendar. No idea how, I was adding lines from/to dependent actions.I want to delete the rows, I think, but when I attempt to select the rows the entire calendar moves. I’m assuming I need to unlock something. I’ve found 3 options to unlock, and have selected each of them. None has allowed me to select anything. I’m also concerned that just selecting random unlocks is helping to stabilize our calendar, but have no idea what they do What do I need to do to remove the additional rows? What do the various Lock/Unlock options actually do?
How to start fullscreen Presentation Mode?
I’m trying to use presentation mode. The frames are there but they are viewing all the frames instead of a slideshow view. Do I still ‘invite-view only’ ? What if they already are an editor on that board? I even tried screen share and they said they can see the beginning of the next slide (does that mean I made the frames to big? what size should the frames be? frustrated
Locking and unlocking many objects
When I create boards for training, I lock absolutely everything that I don’t want participants to move, because it often happens that new Miro users will accidently move something, and then be completely distracted when they try to figure out how to undo what they did my mistake. My boards can also have a lot of content. I create backgrounds that I lock and put movable items on top of them. Many of you do the same.Locking things and then unlocking them again to modify, rearrange, or adjust them takes a lot of time. It’s not effective to drag-select multiple items to lock them when you have many things mixed in that you don’t want to move. And I want to lock the frames too, of course.Another difficulty with locking and unlocking many items in a bulk lock is when I might want to unlock and adjust only a few items leaving most of the board safely locked. So I end up Shift-clicking on dozens of objects to lock them, in batches or at once.Has anyone discovered any tricks or best practices f
Copying text from Miro and pasting into another application - without formatting
Why is it that whenever I copy text in Miro and paste it into another application it always comes with a grey background that I can’t seem to remove? I often want to pull pieces of our notes out of a board and put them into another document, but the formatting always includes this grey background, and I can’t figure out how to get rid of it.
I am unable to lock or unlock items, but others are.
I am on a board where I am unable to lock or unlock items. When I started working on this, I was able to Long Press to Unlock, but now that option is not provided to me. I am a guest, but other guests are able to long press to unlock, but I am not, which is frustrating.
Copy paste does not work
Suddenly copy pasting elements on my miro boards is not working anymore.If I try to copy, paste for instance an sticky note it always seems to paste a text element. This happens for all various elements I try to copy.How can this problem be solved. Is there a setting which was by accident triggered which could have caused this?Thanks!
Is it possible to merge multiple cells in a Miro Grid?
If we could merge cells in a Miro Grid then we could make a flexible canvas eg Business Model Canvas that can grow or shrink as required to so that any cell can be resized to accomodate the sticky notes associated with that cell, without having to manually rearrange the rest of the canvas.
[RESOLVED] Content (PDFs) begins to load, and then disappears
Hello - we open our board, zoom in to the content we’ve uploaded previously and those PDFs start to load, but then disappear completely. They even disappear on the map (no more blue rectangles). This started last night. Any tips? I emailed support.
New Spell-check Feature
I see in the recent upgrade notes that spell-check was added to Miro, which is great and it is highlighting the mis-spelled words. However, I cannot figure out how to get the suggested word spellings to display? In most applications you use the contextual mouse button, but that does not work. I also tried hovering with, but no suggestions. Is there a hot-key that needs to be used?Anyone else have this issue?
[RESOLVED] Miro either not loading or VERY slow and not showing all of my teams in my dashboard
As of 9:00 AM CST (UTC-6), Miro appears to be experiencing issues. What I am seeing:Miro either does not load at all and times out (I get a 502 Bad Gateway error) If it does finally load, some (or all) of my teams are not present in my dashboard Boards aren’t always loading (some just show the Miro logo spinning).I have opened a help desk ticket with Miro.There are no updates yet on https://status.miro.com/Anyone experiencing issues?
Does anyone know how to contact tech support?
Hi all Small mystery which I have encountered: There is absolutely no way to communicate with Miro team about technical or billing issues. The ‘Contact Us’ form is bugged, flawed and probably will not get attention from Miro (yes, I mean this: https://miro.com/contact/general/) Does anyone has any way to have support ? or Miro simply don’t have one? I am fairly disappointed with the product so far :( Thanks Eyal
How do I delete a single object?
I am just starting out with Miro, and evaluating this for potential use by my team and others. I am struggling with some basic features though. I want to simply delete an object from the board. I am surprised that this is not accomplished with the delete, backspace, or escape keys, nor is it covered in any of the tutorials, articles, community posts that I’ve seen so far. It seems like a pretty basic feature. I am sure it is something obvious that I am missing.
Is there a "Laser pointer" for disсussions?
I just had my first workshop with about 10 People and missed one feature I couldn’t find anywhere: while discussing the sticky notes everybody collaborated to the board, we were sometimes at a loss which Note was talked about. Since there were so many collaborators, the collaborator cursors where hidden. Is there some other way to have a sort of pointer for the moderator to show what object we are talking about at the moment?
