This Localization update brings many features and improvements to help you take your localized website to the next level. While remaining simple on the surface, these features add powerful Localization flexibility, empowering you to meet the needs of a global audience. Hiding CMS Items and Web Pages per Locale lets you provide the most relevant content for each site visitor, while Localized Slugs & Redirects give you full control over your site URLs. In addition, the new Set Locale action in Components enables you to build fully custom Locale pickers to match the specific needs of your site. See the full changelog below.

February 8, 2024

We’re excited to introduce Custom Cursors. Design interactive cursors using components, with infinite ways to customize. Tap into the power of Variants, Effects, and Transitions to design interactions with an incredible fidelity. Get started by adding a custom cursor to your Page, then switch its Variants on any layer. Choose between “Replace” to swap the default cursor with a Component, or “Follow” to add to it. It’s a simple feature at first glance, but as you delve deeper you’ll find it’s remarkably versatile. Watch the video above to learn more, and explore by playing with the demo here. We can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with.

February 1, 2024

This update introduces a redesigned Page Panel that merges all page types under a single view. CMS pages are now neatly nested under their respective index pages, and part of the same hierarchy. This makes them easier to find, edit, and rename. Plus, if your site has 100s of pages, you now no longer have to scroll down to create new CMS pages—you can always add new pages via the menu at the top of the panel. For all new projects, Canvas pages are now hidden by default. If needed, these can be re-enabled in Preferences. We’re excited to further simplify our Page Panel after we introduced Folders in December, and believe it will make larger sites even easier to manage. Let us know what you think in the Community.

January 30, 2024

The January Update brings improvements to the Rows and Columns Stack presets, adds a Video tool to the Layout Menu, improves the Gap and Padding controls, and more. You can now hit ⇧V to quickly add new Videos to your pages, with full control over the dimensions. The Stack tool got a little smarter too, and now automatically groups when dragged over existing layers. Plus, customizing spacing within Stacks has never been easier with our improved Gap and Padding controls. For everything else, see the full changelog below.

January 23, 2024

This release introduces a new Creative Section to the Insert Panel, with fun components and presets that you can use to bring your sites to life. You might recognize a few of these from framer.supply—we have redesigned and reimplemented these, and you’ll now find the latest and greatest versions directly in Framer. It has never been easier to design bold headers with responsive typography using Fit Text, or to design infinitely-looping badges with the new Arc Component. We’ve also added a couple of handy Pattern presets, like Wave, Grid, and Noise, for easy access. Inserting these gives you a Frame with the pattern pre-applied, ready for you to customize. We hope you’ll enjoy these new elements and we’ll add more over time.

  • Fit Text for bold responsive headers.

  • Arc for badges and circular type.

  • Scribbles for playful doodles.

This release adds a Tile option to Image Fills, allowing you to create seamless background patterns for your sites. We’ve also included 8 new scalable preset patterns: Noise, Checker, Grid, Lines, Rhombus, Wave, Polka, and Diagonal. Resize your patterns with the new Scale property, which is set to your image size by default.

Let us know what you think in the Community, we’d love to hear your thoughts!

December 19, 2023

The December Update introduces a completely redesigned Page Panel, adding support for nesting and folders. This makes it much easier to manage larger websites with over 100s of Pages, and it even allows you to do batch actions like updating the path of multiple pages at once, just by renaming a Folder. Click on the plus icon to create new Pages or new Folders, or simply drag Pages on top of one another to nest them. We have more Page updates coming in 2024, but we believe you’ll enjoy this first round of updates.

December 7, 2023

This release adds support for Stack Variables within Components and CMS. This means you can now turn properties like Gap, Padding, Direction, Distribute, and Align into customizable controls, allowing you to design much more flexible Components. For things like Navigations, this means you have to rely less on Variants for responsiveness across Breakpoints, and can instead use Variables, allowing you to keep Variants for interactivity. An example of this can be seen in the video above. The addition of these Variables also enables you control layout via CMS Items, unlocking exciting new use cases. Variable support for the Wrap property is coming soon too. Please let us know which ones you’d like to see next in the Community.

Define your brand tone, add key context, specify ignored words, and more—then let AI Translation handle the rest. To ensure high precision translation AI Style enables the latest GPT-4 Turbo AI Model from OpenAI (translation times may fluctuate based on their API demand).

You can animate all pages of your site with a single click, or target specific pages to animate between. Plus, you can add custom masking effects like Wipe, Inset, and Blinds, making your sites stand out. Currently Page Effects work in Chrome, Edge, and Arc. On browsers like Safari and Firefox, these will simply default back to instant, so it’s a great way to progressively enhance your site. Watch the video above to learn more.

November 16, 2023

This release brings Effects to Components. We support everything from Appear, Hover, Press, Drag, and Loop to Scroll Animations, Scroll Transforms, and Scroll Speed. This unlocks tons of new interactions, and it makes Effects reusable. For example, you can now animate your navigation bar on scroll by adding a single Scroll Animation to it. Create components with incredible fidelity. This has been one of our most requested features, and we’re excited to see what you’ll create.

Instant Preview
Instant Preview
Instant Preview

Introducing our completely re-engineered Preview, optimized for performance. Even in large sites with 300+ CMS items, your pages should now load instantly. No more staring at loading spinners. Our previous Preview would have to load your entire project before it could start rendering your page, and then applied updates with your edits. The new Preview exclusively uses the same generated code as your published site, so it’s not only faster, but also more accurate. Plus, we’ve also tackled animation issues causing all transitions to stop working. We think you’ll love it, and would love to hear your thoughts in the Community.

November 7, 2023

In this Relative Overlays Update, we’re adding Collision Detection. Design menus without worrying about them getting cut-off or clipped.

Color Style Search
Color Style Search
Color Style Search

The September Update is our biggest monthly update yet. It includes more than 20 workflow improvements and bug fixes. We’ve made managing your Text and Color Styles a lot easier: on open, your selected style will always be in view, and you can now search your Styles directly from the pop-out. This greatly improves managing projects with 100+ styles, and there are more Style updates planned. We’ve also fixed a common issue where Framer applying height: 100% to the site body would break interactions on mobile devices. This might affect certain pages with small fixed heights like <800 which would previously automatically fill the viewport. The fix here is simple: set the height to 100vh instead. If you’re running into any issues, let us know in the Community, we’re happy to help.

Canvas Performance
Canvas Performance
Canvas Performance

This release introduces a completely new renderer for the Canvas in Framer that greatly improves the editing experience, especially in large projects. This includes resizing layers, changing content, changing layouts, and much more. In our tests, we’ve seen improvements starting from 2X when editing, and much more in huge pages. For example, resizing a layer within an auto-sizing Stack could previously take 300ms or more per frame, and this release brings that down to 90ms per frame. Enjoy an even faster editing experience, in projects large and small.

September 12, 2023

A small dropdown now sits on top of the Layer Panel, letting you know which Page you are currently viewing without having to switch back to the Pages Panel. It also allows you to browse and search all Pages within your project. On focus, you can type the name of any Page to quickly switch back and forth. If you’re managing a large project, we believe you’ll love it. Watch the overview video above to learn more.

Last but not least, we brought Search inline, so you can quickly find any item within your collection list, even while editing. We hope you’ll enjoy these updates, and would love to hear what you think in the Community.

When you invite someone to your project, you decide which permissions you want that person to have. Permissions are per project and can be a combination of the following: Design, Content, Deploy. Specific permissions per member helps your team to stay organized and prevents accidental changes to your site. For a complete overview of the changes, read the update on the Framer Community.

New Pro Workspace Plan
  • Everything from Basic Workspace

  • Supports up to 10 editors 

  • Use Project Permissions

  • 30-day Version History

Updated Pro Site Plan
  • Everything from existing Pro Site plan

  • Page Search Limit increased from 25 to 300

  • Visitors per Month increased from 100k to 200k

  • Existing Pro Sites get these updates for free

July 18, 2023

The July Update is here, and it’s all about gradients. We’re introducing support for Multi-Stop Gradients, Conic Gradients, and more. You can now design Linear, Radial, and Conic gradients with infinite color stops. We’ve also redesigned our Fill Picker with a brand new interface, including an inline Gradient Editor. Plus, inserting components got a lot faster, adding component interactions got easier, responsive previewing got better, and much more. See the full changelog below.

  • Inserting Components is now much faster, and following inserts are instant

  • Improved the mobile dashboard layout, bringing back search functionality

  • You can now diagonally resize pages in the Preview, via the bottom corners

  • When adding Component interactions, we now always let you pick the Trigger

  • Fixed a bug where gradient animations only worked after clicking the layer

  • Fixed a bug where menu actions like FileUpload did not work in Safari

  • Fixed a bug where images would not be downloadable on published websites

  • Fixed a bug where lists in RTL languages would not render properly in the CMS

  • Fixed a bug where the system theme setting would be stuck after first switch

  • Fixed a bug where the Scrollbars property would not work on Breakpoints

  • Fixed a bug where layers in Overlays would still be clickable after closing

We’re excited to introduce Code Blocks & Inline Code, unlocking the ability to document and present your code in Framer. Get started in the CMS via the Formatted Text Toolbar, showcase your code on the Canvas by finding the Code Block component in the Insert Panel, or type a backtick anywhere for Inline Code. We have integrated these features deeply with our performance pipeline with no flashes on page load, and by utilising the power of Sandpack for Code Blocks, the editing experience gives you a 1:1 consistency with your output. Watch the video above to learn more, or remix our docs template here.

  • Added Inline Code formatting to the CMS

  • Added Code Block component to the CMS

  • Added Inline Code style to Assets Panel

  • Added Code Block style to Assets Panel

  • Faster Component insertion in the CMS

This release introduces three new features designed to improve navigations in Framer. First, we’ve added viewport unit support to the Height property of any layer within a Variant. This helps you design new interactions, such as backdrops that should fade in-and-out. Second, we’re upgrading the Transition property, which now can be added to any layer within your Variants. This gives you precise control over your animations, allowing you to target specific layers to animate, and exclude others. Third, we’re adding support for Transitions to Link Styles, so all of your links can now be animated on Hover. Combined, these features unlock new types of mobile navigations—beyond ones that animate to fill the viewport height. Watch the video above to learn more, or remix our demo here.

  • You can now use Viewport units for Height in Component Variants

  • You can now assign the Transition property to any layer within a Variant

  • Link Style states, like Hover, can now be animated with an Easing Transition

  • Fixed Variants with Delay not switching instantly between Breakpoints


This release brings new properties that unlock new types of navigation patterns in Framer. First, we’re adding separate Overflow X and Overflow Y properties, giving you much more control. Second, we’re adding the Scrollbars property, enabling you to show or hide scrollbars of specific layers. Combined, these new styles allow you to design completely responsive navigations without variants. Watch the video above to learn more, or remix our demo here to get started.

June 28, 2023

In this release, we’re introducing new features that improve mobile navigations in Framer, empowering you to deliver exceptional user experiences. We’ve recently shipped viewport unit support within components, for sizing properties such as min-height and max-height. This enables you to design expanded navigation states without relying on nesting. Today, we’re adding the overscroll property, which prevents the page from scrolling along with your navigation. We’ve also refreshed the component previewing experience, avoiding height animations being cut-off. Watch the video above to learn more, or remix our demo here.

  • You can use Viewport units for Min and Max Height in Components

  • You can now preview height animations from the Component Canvas

  • You can add Overscroll to any layer with Overflow set to Scroll

Simply create a Text Layer, head over to the Size property and set it to Fit. You can also use Fit Text on multiple lines of text, which you can create by hitting enter when you want your line to break. Define minimum and maximum font sizes by using the Min Width and Max Width properties. This can be done on the Text Layer itself, or any parent layer. Best of all, this feature keeps your sites blazing fast. Framer can render your typography at the right size even before JavaScript runs on your website.

Layer Panel Sorting
Layer Panel Sorting
Layer Panel Sorting

This quality update improves the sorting of both your Breakpoints and Variants in the Layer Panel. Breakpoints are now sorted from Desktop → Tablet → Phone, and Variants are now sorted by Primary, meaning from Variant 1 → 3. All changes are inherited from the Primary Breakpoint or Variant, so this makes it easier to work with both Pages and Components.

Domain Connect
Domain Connect
Domain Connect

With this update, we can now automatically configure your custom domains to work with Framer. We currently support domains managed by Google Domains, GoDaddy, and IONOS, but we’ll be adding more providers in the coming weeks. When setting up a custom domain from a supported provider, you’ll now see an Auto Connect button. Click it, and we’ll direct you to your provider where you can review the changes we want to make on your behalf, and apply them with a single click. How does it work? When you want to use a custom domain for your Framer site, you need to point it at the Framer servers by modifying the DNS records. So far, this has been a manual process: Framer tells you what to change, and you log into your provider’s control panel and make the changes. But thanks to an open standard called Domain Connect, we can now automate this process.

March 16, 2023

We’re excited to introduce Light and Dark Mode for your websites, with all new Color Styles. Add a Color Style, define a Light and Dark Theme, then use the Styles throughout your project.

DotLottie
DotLottie
DotLottie

We’ve collaborated with the LottieFiles team to create a new Framer plugin for DotLottie. Find this new component in the Insert Panel, under the Media section. You can use it to design and add amazing animations with incredibly small file sizes, often just a few kilobytes. DotLottie is an open-source file format that aggregates one or more Lottie files and their associated resources into a single file. They’re ZIPs compressed with the Deflate compression method and carry the file extension of .lottie. The previous Lottie component supports older Lottie files with the .json extension. Both work great, but DotLottie files are smaller and thus faster to load. You can find animations to download here or remix our demo.

2x Publishing
2x Publishing
2x Publishing

This release brings two improvements that can make your site up to 2x as fast.

  • When you publish your site, we pre-render a static HTML version on the server, so it loads faster and Google can analyze it for SEO (using React and SSR). We have optimized this process to use multiple CPUs on our server at the same time. Now, even sites with hundreds of pages can finish in seconds.

  • We serve your site from a global cache location close to your visitors to make sure your site loads fast. In addition, we use an advanced HTML and text compression algorithm called Brotli. Compressed content is now cached, so we can send it directly to your visitors instead of compressing each request individually. In our tests this often improves loading speed by up to 2x, which will have a very positive impact on your Lighthouse scores like LCP. This will be especially noticeable on larger sites, so you can scale your site without worry.

This update allows you to restore fully responsive layouts from the past.

The update also makes loading versions in the panel faster, as well as optimizing the viewing experience of older versions. Watch the video overview to see the Version History and the new copy paste behaviour in action, or read more about how it works.

With this release, you can now view a list of all of the changes in your project since the last deploy, making it easier to decide whether the site is ready to be updated or not. Simply click on the Publish button and you will see a list of all of the updated pages, components, and CMS items below your domains. You will be able to see who has made the changes, and click on each item to view the corresponding element.

With this release, we’ve greatly improved the optimization and loading times of your websites. Sites now build and load faster because the CSS is minified with esbuild instead of csso. esbuild is much faster and better at de-duplicating certain advanced CSS rules, which means you will experience significantly lighter CSS files for complex pages. For our own site, we saw a 60% improvement in CSS size and a 4x speed up for optimization times. To get the same advantages, re-publish your site.
