Set default Sticky Note size

I prefer to work with the wider sticky AND I like to stick to using the S size. I would love to be able to set the default to that. 

I'm guessing that the negative effect could be that someone is so zoomed out when they add a sticky to the board that they can't see it. On the other hand, as a facilitator, it allows me to give the participants some “rails”.

Please, can anybody tell me how to set the default size of sticky notes in relation to the frame or in relation to a board?

Agreed! Miro is a fabulous tool, but my #1 request is to be able to set the default sticky shape (3 x 5 format naturally!) and the default text size (before it automatically shrinks to fit).

Agreed. In the meantime, I will likely instruct users to make use of the bulk tool and then update the note size all at once and/or provide one of the size and color I want on the board and show them how to duplicate it quickly using ctrl+D rather than adding new ones each time.

The way I have worked around this is by adding sticky notes to each section in advance. It’s a bit more work but each of our templates now has stickies everywhere. This means people can just use the post-its in the size and format that makes sense because they are already there and can easily be duplicated.

For example: 


Please prioritize this feature :-). Another idea how it should look like


Yes, please. It’s a mess when participants start creating their own post-it sizes in a win-by-size match. I would love to be able to control the size of post-it’s and lock it for participants. Since I always work with frames, I have a size reference that I can use, - and I control the zoom level of the participant by pulling them to the frame.

yes please!

Also, set your own defeault justification would be great. The most readeable notes are rectable, with top-left justification.
