Mural provides a facility to insert a link to an object. Unfortunately the Mural approach is put a tiny button in the right hand bottom corner of the object. The button is not proportional to the size of the object. If the object is small the button is visible, but if the object is large then you have no way of knowing it has a link unless you mouse over the button area or you check if there is a link URL in the link button. Please make it so that it is more apparent that an object carries an active link. Example below
If we do not put an arrow pointing to the microscopic button users would not know how to activate the link.
If you made the link button a proportional size to the object then no matter how big or small there would be a visual indication that the link existed.
I should be able to click on the text box to activate the link? Maybe CTRL-Click or ALT-Click
Object grouping and ungrouping should occur in layers - currently, if I group A & B and then group with C - ungrouping will go to completely ungrouped object A, B and C.
This should probably work like other drawing programs - group A&B ... and then group that with C - if you ungroup (A&B)+C - is ungroups first to (A&B), C - if you ungroup again, you get A, B and C
Is there a file format that I can import into my mural board that will be treated as an icon instead of being linked to an external image?
So far importing an SVG or PNG are treated the exact same way on my mural board.
The Goal: Be able to import a vector image and be able to change the color (like icons do).
I wanted to changed the color of my avatar. I really dislike olive drab green.
It would be nice if we could embed live interactive spreadsheets on a Mural board, such as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. This would be exceptionally helpful for long term project plans that expand horizontally.
This feature would include a vertical and horizontal scroll content block.
I recently tried the new mind map feature - and think that its implementation is quite simple but yet useful.
But I miss one feature a lot: I'd like to rearrange topics - also in their hierarchy; e. g. moving a topic to a new parent.
Why is this useful?
While brainstorming I normally do not care that much about structure - let it flow ;-) For further usage I have to elaborate my thoughts - thus giving more structure to my mind map. That is when rearranging topics comes into play.
I think this kind of refactoring is a crucial advantage of digital mind mapping.
We have a use case where our client teams would like the content within an area in one canvas to be linked to an identical area on another canvas so that when content is changed in either canvas it automatically syncs/mirrors in the other canvas area. THIS WOULD BE AMAZING!!!
Background: Our client is using MURAL as a visual workplace for daily effective communications sessions between teams which includes people visually sharing what has changed since yesterday. Some of the functional teams have very similar information across different teams and at the moment they either:
A) manually update in several places/canvases or B) we have to maintain a separate canvas for the functional team that people have to jump between in meetings which defeats the purpose of a single visual workspace.
It would be great to be able to assign a participant a color in the Mural so that when they create a sticky it is automatically in the color for more streamlined ideation.
When preparing a Mural, to deliver another day, I know that I sometimes want to have a vote on topics. It would be helpful to be able to prepare one or more votes, titled for the particular topic, then save them in the Voting tab. This means I don't need to prepare each vote during the session: it is ready to go when I need it. I would open the voting tab, select the vote I want to run, then run it.
Without this, I either give the team a short break, while I prepare the vote. Or they watch me setting it up, which is not very good viewing.
It would save time, and reduce errors, as I will use the same vote every time the session is delivered, rather than set it up each and every time.
