💡Feature idea: Be able to keep locks in duplicated areas / of duplicated objects

1. What you want to be able to do in MURAL

I want to be able to arrange things in an area (e.g. a setup for a method like "Crazy 8") and then quickly duplicate those areas (CTRL+D or ALT+drag) for every participant or group. I use lock extensively to make sure that nothing is changed unintentionally.

2. The problem you are trying to solve

The problem is that objects which are locked by me as a facilitator in the original area are not locked anymore in the duplicates. I wish locks would remain the same in duplicates.

3. Why this helps everyone (or many people)

It might take a lot of time and is quite frustrating to over and over (un)select the same objects in every duplicate to lock or unlock them.

  • I have this same challenge, and it adds so much setup time to have to go back and re-lock everything that I had already locked. It seems that we used to be able to do this when I first started using Mural, but now it has changed and adds more work OR causes problems during sessions if we haven't gone back to specifically click in every single thing to check the lock status.
