This would be a really useful feature. Having to move a hundred different objects one at a time (sometimes multiple times to get it just right) is quite a chore.

I don't necessarily care about being able to edit multiple objects at once (although it would be nice), just being able to move objects would be enough.

There have been at least 15 updates since this topic was last visited. Is there anything we as users can do to get this implemented? Anytime I have to update maps like this one it takes me way longer than it should:

Can we get into the code of the map itself and do our own copying and pasting? I'll take just about anything that doesn't require me to click and drag a hundred different icons.

The map editor will get revamped in the course of the next year. Selecting multiple objects will probably be a part of the rewrite. As always, I can't give a ETA of that.

Any update on this feature? We're deploying maps extensively and updating maps is becoming a very laborious task. Thanks.

Hi Argast and others,

It sure is within our backlog, but it won't happen 2017. It will be implemented once the map editor gets a major overhaul, but I can't tell you when that will be.


Kind regards,

It's still on the map for our map overhaul. But there's still no ETA on this. Rest assured, we haven't forgot about that, there are just other major construction sites within PRTG we need to address first.

" Hi, this feature is planned to be implemented in the near future! Please bear with us. Created on Jan 18, 2013 2:56:14 PM by Gerald Schoch [Paessler Support] "

5 years have passed since that reply... It shouldn't take you that long to implement such a simple 'feature'. We only use your maps, nothing else but if it takes ages to create one, we have to consider finding another product and not prolong our license with you. Like seriously....more than 5 years?

I know that it's more than subpar not having feature requests implemented for that long, but the map editor will be addressed sooner or later. It's not just implementing some fancy JavaScript and new CSS:

  • Find matching components for the needs of the project
  • Create the components if none are available.
  • You'll have to make sure it doesn't break anything in the web interface
  • It has to be backwards compatible (if possible at all)
  • Requires all development departments to test extensively (Development, QA, etc.)

A lot of man hours required for that, which we are currently implementing in other areas of PRTG, as mentioned already. Grafana is something I'd recommend here as an alternative, but it doesn't have multi-select as well ;)

Any news regarding this, while there's an understanding you're working on other features, this really should have been implemented by now (5 years and counting)?

Sorry, no news on that front. As it's a major feature, it'll be rather prominent on https://www.paessler.com/prtg/history/stable, so you won't miss it once it's out :)
