5 tips to enhance your Symbaloo experience

Home / Did You Know / 5 tips to enhance your Symbaloo experience
Know the best and most efficient ways to organize your account & manage your resources.

#1 Move a tile to another webmix

To move a tile to another webmix, you can right click on the tile to access the edit menu and then select “Copy / Move”. But there is another, faster way: You can drag the tile you want to move and drop it over the webmix tab. Voilà, you moved the tile to the other webmix. In some cases the buttons in the top center will light up red when you are trying to perform this action. That means you can not place the tile on that webmix. Either because the webmix is locked and you can’t edit it or it is a RSS webmix that does not allow regular tiles.
Note: This only works for moving not copying a tile.

#2 Move a webmix

If you want to change the order of your webmix tabs or the webmixes in the sidebar menu, you can do that easily. Simply go to the webmix you want to move and use the drag & drop method to place the webmix where you want.
Note: The same concept works for the order your webmixes in the sidebar menu on the left.

#3 Add a webmix icon

Add an icon to your webmix to better find your resources: Click on the Options button in the top center and then on “Change the webmix icon” to select from different icons and colors.
Note: Don’t forget to click the Save button after making your changes.

#4 Shortcuts

Move quickly through your Symbaloo by using these keyboard combinations.

Shift + W : Show my pages sidebar
Shift + O : Show my edit page sidebar
Shift + S : Show share page screen
Shift + H : Go to Home tab (first tab or tab set in settings)
Shift + N : Add new page screen

Note: The shortcuts don’t work when your cursor is in the Google search

# 5: Rename your webmix

If you double click on a webmix tab, you go instantly to the webmix options and change the name quickly.
