MULTI SELECT

Perform bulk operations on multiple, non consecutive blocks!

Installation

You could use the Copy Extension button below to individually install this extension. To install, just paste anywhere in your Roam graph and click "Yes, I Know What I'm Doing".

Manual Installation

If instead you prefer to manually install, first create a block with the text {{[[roam/js]]}} on any page in your Roam DB. Then, copy and paste this code block as a child of the block.

var existing = document.getElementById("roamjs-multi-select");
if (!existing) {
  var extension = document.createElement("script");
  extension.src = "https://roamjs.com/multi-select.js";
  extension.id = "roamjs-multi-select";
  extension.async = true;
  extension.type = "text/javascript";
  document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(extension);
}

Usage

Roam natively supports bulk operations when blocks are consecutive. This extension gives you the ability to perform those same bulk operations on non consecutive blocks!

To use the multi select, hold on CTRL on Windows or CMD on Mac before clicking a block. Once multiple blocks are selected, you could do the following operations:

  • Move blocks - Pick any of the selected block bullets and drag it to the new location.
  • Copy blocks - Hitting CTRL+C (Windows) or CMD+C (Mac) will copy the contents of the non consecutively selected blocks.
  • Cut blocks - Hitting CTRL+X (Windows) or CMD+X (Mac) will cut the contents of the non consecutively selected blocks.
  • Copy block refs - Hitting CTRL+Shift+C (Windows) or CMD+Shift+C (Mac) will copy the references of the non consecutively selected blocks.
