Carbon Copy

Switch sync on and your ideas remain intact in multiple locations across your board; update an idea in one place and it syncs everywhere. Carbon Copy allows you to keep multiple versions of a Sticky, Card, Shape or Text widgets in sync with each other on a board. For example, copy post-its into a different template or re-organise them against some other x, y axis without having to maintain duplicates!

Basic usage:

  • Switch sync on: Enable the sync feature on a widget’s context menu then copy and paste (or duplicate) the widget. Each widget instance maintains a 2-way sync with all the other instances on the board.
  • Select synced widgets: If you want to find all the linked widgets just use the “select synced” button and it will select them for you.
  • Detach from syncing: Just switch syncing off in this widget’s Context Menu and it detaches from the sync group.

What’s syncable with each widget:

  • Sticky widgets: Text, color, hyperlinks, tags.
  • Card widgets: Title text, content text, tags.
  • Text widgets: Text, color, font type, alignment, bullets/numbers (careful when adding bullets, this is not easily reversible), hyperlinks, text highlight color.
  • Shape widgets: Text, text position, font type, bold/italics, stroke (shape outline) color & thickness, background color, background opacity
  • Line widgets: Line color and thickness, arrow styles (text on lines are NOT synced)
