      Hello Ivo,

      Technically there is no limit to the number of people who can be on a board at the same time. I have had 50 at once. Although there is no technical limit, you will probably find, as I did, that when you get that many people on a board at the same time things can get a bit chaotic.

      We would love to hear about your experiences with "mob boards"!

      Dave

            Thanks!

            Did you know you can copy/paste text into a card?

                      Another great suggestion. Please keep them coming (but please be patient too, there are only three of us and we all have day jobs :)

                        This is a great idea and I am going to share it with the dev team so we can get it captured on our to-do list.

                            Pen tool is next, but ability to add persistent relationships between cards is also on the list

                            AdminDave Gray (Co-founder, Boardthing) commented  · 

                            Alberta, did you know about this? http://davegray.looplogic.com/nested-hierarchies

                            AdminDave Gray (Co-founder, Boardthing) commented  · 

                            If you had a pen tool that you could use to draw with, like you could on a whiteboard, would that work?

                            I don't understand what this means: "to show when a group of cards is a sequence or alternatives"

                              Topher, we are adding a pen tool. However you can add a board background now. Just make an image card, resize it to the size you want and lock it to make a background.

                                    We have a pen tool on our to-do list. This would be simple, like a pen on a whiteboard, not links that would retain connections as you move them. We are considering that also but that would be further down the road.

                                      That's a nice idea Brad.

                                        Hi Horia,

                                        We are working on all the iPad and mobile functionality right now and it's next on the launch list. We should roll it out sometime in the next few weeks.

                                        Dave

                                          Horia, currently you can't export a board as a PDF. But there are export options which you can find in the settings icon at the top of your board.

                                          This came from Arcan Guner but since he had put two ideas in one post it was hard to vote. So I created this one.

                                            Horia, at the moment you can resize text cards horizontally or vertically by going into the settings icon on a card and clicking "resize." This does not work for image cards, which maintain their aspect ratio as they scale.

                                            Thanks Astrid, great point. We've got this on our to-do list.
