Add videos to your board

Paste the link to a video to embed it into your board. Copy either the Youtube link or the MP4 link and paste it directly onto the board with Ctrl + V.
The video will appear on your board and can be played / stopped with a single click.
Ctrl + click selects the video so you can move, resize and delete it.

Slapping

To slap someone, hold the space bar and fling your cursor through their avatar to send them flying (with bonus sound effects). If you find slaps annoying, disable them in the user settings.

Command Palette

We built Metro Retro so that all actions on a board can be programmatically executed with commands.
This means that in the future you could script an automated workshop. We're not quite there yet, but for now you can browse examples of the commands that will be available for keyboard ninjas.
Press the Ctrl + Space keys to bring up the Command Palette.

From here you can scroll through the commands, or type to find a command.
This is in very early stages, so we don't recommend doing anything with it beyond browsing the commands. You'd need to know the correct parameters to type for most of the operations.
