Frames group items on a board.

Experimental feature Experimental

Frames are parent items that can contain and group child items on a board such as shapes, text, images, and so on.

When frames contain child items, the x and y coordinates of a child item mark the center point of the child item, relative to the top-left corner of the parent frame.

Frames help structure and organize board content:

  • They enable exporting board content to PDF format, and to save it as a presentation.
  • They are indexed, so they make it easier to find board content.
  • With board presentation mode enabled, you can order indexed frames to define the slide sequence in the presentation.
