There are simple ways to add a Frame to the board:
- Select Frame on the toolbar or press F on your keyboard and click anywhere on the board or drag the cursor.
- Drag and drop a Frame widget right on the board.
Adding a frame
And if you need to add an existing frame from another board - just copy and paste it like any other content! Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V will work as well.
Frames act like pages that group objects together. All the content inside the frame moves and is copied together with the frame. Accidentally deleted a frame? Have no worries, all the content will stay on the board.
Modifying a Frame
💡 You can get a direct link to any frame on the board. Share this link with your collaborators to draw their attention to the exact frame. Open the context menu and choose Copy link:

⚠️ Please note that those users will still have access to the whole board.
Grid in Frames
Working on a user story map, service blueprint, customer journey map etc., you want a quick way to organize objects and keep them organized after adding new ones. In cases like this grid in frames comes in extremely helpful.
To automatically snap content in the frame to a grid, enable the Grid option in the context menu. To switch back to the free-form layout, choose the Freeform option.
When you drop a new object into a frame, it is arranged along with the other objects in the grid. This is a real time-saver for those who often add new content to their boards and need to keep them in order. Resize the frame to change the position of objects in the grid.
Please note that links, comments and other frames cannot be snapped to a grid
