When prototyping an interface in Figma, the ability to add frames can be extremely beneficial. Frames are a great way to group elements together and provide structure for your prototype. They also allow you to create multiple instances of the same element, making it easier to test out different designs or features. Adding frames in Figma is easy and can help speed up your workflow.
To add a frame in Figma, select the “+” icon on the left-hand side of the interface. This will open up a menu of options, including “Frame”.
Click on this option and you will be able to select either a rectangle or an ellipse shape for your frame. Once you have selected your shape, you can adjust its size by dragging the corners of the frame or entering specific dimensions into the settings panel on the right-hand side of the screen.
You can also customize your frame by adding a background color or image from the “Fill” settings in the right-hand panel. Additionally, you can adjust other properties such as border width, border color, opacity and more from this same menu.
Once you have finished styling your frame, you can start adding elements to it such as text boxes, buttons and images. To do this simply drag and drop elements into your frame from the toolbar on the left-hand side of the screen.
Finally, when adding components to your prototype using frames it is important to remember that they are only visible when viewing an instance of that component or element. For example, if you have created a button inside a frame and then added an image outside of that frame it will not be visible when viewing an instance of that button.
Adding frames in Figma is easy and can help speed up your prototyping workflow. All you need to do is select “Frame” from the “+” icon menu and then customize it by adjusting size and other properties such as background color or image from the settings panel on the right-hand side of screen. After styling your frame you can start adding elements such as text boxes, buttons and images by dragging them into place from the toolbar on left-hand side of screen.
