A collection of just 23 bugs
I have since we started using Mural found at least the 23 bugs/oddities listed below. I have emailed some of these earlier but was asked to put them here. I put them in one question as i didn't notice a "break n french-lines into multiple-questions" feature on this site and you haven't got a mural to put them in....
Let me know if any of them are unclear by referencing the number. Otherwise i hope to see fixes soon. :)
1 Templates created from a "Template" mural causes any previewers to join the source mural as editors. We would expect it to be a copy as we might wish to modify our copy for internal use. Make it an option to copy!. Also ensure that copies of template won't have creator as owner!
2 Send to back doesn't work for lines.... like background arrows to guide box movements in a kanban style diagram
3 Folder boxes takes unnecessary vertical (and horizontal space). Minimize row hights to fit all text on the row. Also, the folder boxes should be reorderable by Room admins.
4 Mural name should be shown in full in mural's top-left corner. Reduce font size at least to a limit instead of cutting. The "Created by" can be shortened to Creator: and right-adjusted. If needed at all.
5 in Outline present mode the link buttons activates only when clicked on the very left side of button. And not even then always.
6 All shapes doesn't support adding Links. For example the hexagon.
7 Sometimes stock images are not shown to others. Sometimes clicking on one makes it start working, but waiting days doesn't.
8 Would it be possible to enter edit mode in a sticky by simply double-clicking? Now we have to click once first or we'll get an added sticky on top of existing one.
9 The exported pdf has many bugs. When converted to PowerPoint with adobe's tool, some the text and stickynote box gets disconnected with text on transparent movable outside colored box. Colors are not kept. Selecting all and trying to resize everything causes disaster with everything stretched terribly. Of course it's possible it's Adobe's fault.
10 The Absorb function doesn't absorb everything within the area. It seems to not like boxes within other boxes. So it just doesn't include them. For example a preconfigured KanBan area when added to Contents Library only gets the upper left parts.
11 when right-clicking the mouse tracking doesn't work as expected. Cursor position is take from where menu selection was instead of where i right-clicked.
12 When copying a big Area and pasting into a new mural, the size is much larger than expected and trying to scrink the whole pasted thing causes it to zoom into the very left upper corner and making panning impossible and even crashing.
13 Unconnected lines are never becoming part of a Area in full. Only the starting point moves with it which other end stays in place!
14 Link adding doesn't work for links ending with / . Manually removing it is boring...
15 Sometimes one can adjust box size only horizontally. Dragging corner + then adjust width works.
16 with -> in a sticky's text it should never linebreak after between - and >. Could even convert into a nice arrow.
17 when moving a connected box to other side of it's "pair", only one end automove to other edge but not the other's.
18 When grouping a stickit and an image, the Link option disappears from toolbar! It should be possible to edit it at least as long as there is just one link in the group.
19 Selected Lines should NOT move as whole by default, especially when connected (or near) at at least one end.
20 When someone (accidentally) starts editing a box with link, the link button stops working. It would be good if it could still be used -- especially when the link isn't being edited!
21 Images used as background suddenly becomes foreground if put in an area (perhaps with image partially outside). Not even send to back helped.
22 Why doesn't mural put copied (selected) objects onto clipboard in emf format? I would expect copy paste to powerpoint or email to work reasonably.
23 When selecting many items to add to Contents Library, it complains that snapshot can't be created. But the adding still works. Maybe no point in showing error message....
