We’re constantly improving Framer. See the latest features and improvements.
There are new options available with the Scroll tool in Framer. With the Offset and Reset options added to the Scroll tool you can now animate to any scroll position or offset your scroll. You also have the option to reset scroll, set initial scroll position, and reverse scroll direction. Draw a scrollable area with the Scroll tool to see the new options in the properties panel.
The Recommended Teams feature enables new team members to easily find and join existing Framer teams within their organization. Everyone who creates a new team with their company email address will get the opportunity to recommend this team to anyone with the same email domain.
To make sure you have this setting turned on, go to the Permissions section of the Team Settings modal and check the box next to Recommend Team.
Introducing Smart Components—interactive components that have their own interactions, animations, and properties. And require no code to build.
To create a Smart Component use the shortcut command + K or go to the Component section of the top toolbar. Once your component is created you’ll arrive in the Component Canvas and you can start building. The key ingredients in creating Smart Components are Variants and Variables.
Variants are different visual states of a component, such as disabled, error, or hover. You can add as many Variants as you need to your components in the Component Canvas. You can easily add hover and pressed states to your components with infinite visual Variants then, add Variables to customize even further. Variables are custom properties you can expose in your components. Anything can be a Variable from text to color to border radius making it easy to customize any property you need in any component instance.
To unlock even more advanced layouts, you can even nest Smart Components, each with their own Variants and Variables, then compose them to create the most realistic interactive experiences.
Templates provide a starting point for new projects. You can choose from 13 default templates in the new project modal or create your own and share them with the rest of your team. In order to create your own, you can go to the templates folder within your team and start from scratch or convert any of your team projects into templates.
You can now find a better preview experience in Framer. Previewing has been redesigned for quick iterations, previewing in context, and showcasing your work. When a layer is selected on the canvas, you will see a preview icon attached to the layer. This means your mouse travels less distance to the preview icon and a shorter time in between previewing and iterating.
This release includes new options for customizing how your prototype is displayed in the preview window. Starting with a full collection of realistic and clay devices that features phones, laptops, monitors, watches, and TVs. The new options also include device hands and custom backgrounds that open up infinite customization possibilities. These custom display settings will also remain when you share a link to your prototype, so you can showcase the most polished version of your prototype with anyone. In addition, when you’re previewing you can quickly switch between layers and recently viewed elements in the Recents dropdown in the upper left corner.
Introducing the Assets section of the Insert Menu for easy access to useful design resources. In this new Insert Menu category, find shapes, icons, and illustrations from all the best creators and libraries. Designing in Framer has never been easier. With quick access to hundreds of icons available from in the canvas, and customizable illustration libraries you’ll have a beautifully designed prototype in no time.
Check out this category to see all new pre-made vector shapes and custom icon sets, including Feather icons, Material icons, Hero icons, and Phosphor icons. Plus the Humaaans illustration set.
The Screen tool provides a solid starting point for every new project. You can choose from a range of device presets including, everything from desktop to watch interfaces. Once your screen size is selected, use the Frame tool to continue designing interface elements.
With the introduction of the Screen tool, your shortcuts have also been shifted. Press the ‘S’ key to create a new screen and press Shift + S to create a new stack.
An updated Insert Menu featuring new categories created with the goal of putting exactly what you need at your fingertips. There are now 6 categories to help you quickly find any component you can think of.
Interface is where you can find tons of UI elements, including buttons, inputs, icons, checkboxes, and more. All interactive out of the box.
The Media section contains any components that provide or embed media from an external source. Here you can find things like video and audio players.
Utility components give functionality to your designs, prototypes, and canvas. Here find loading indicators, progress bars, sticky notes, and more to ensure you have everything you need to communicate your ideas.
In the Community packages section, browse an open-source library of thousands of free components to jumpstart your prototypes. Here you can find anything from simple buttons to advanced data population components. Check out the Featured section to see the most popular Community packages.
Team packages are by your team and for your team, totally private and designed to help your team share and use your most up-to-date assets. And finally, any package you save from your team or the community can be found in the Favorites section.
New categories are just the beginning, the real magic is what you will find inside. In addition to the new structure, we’ve added more interactive components built for you by the Framer team. Find an Avatar generator, Cursors for MacOS, Rating indicator, Progress bars, a Select component, and Date & Time displays.
Use these components and more to add easy interactivity to your prototypes. Just drag from the Insert Menu, drop anywhere on the canvas, and bring your prototypes to the next level.
A cleaner, more focused interface with more real estate allows you to focus on the properties you use most with less distraction by those you don’t need as often.
The indentation on properties helps improve scanability and predictability, helping you find properties faster. And moving properties like Radius and Opacity away from Layout and under Style, creates a much more sensible division of properties.
The experience of adding, deleting and editing properties that can have multiple rows/values (like Interactions and Shadows) is consistent and easier to understand for users who are new to Framer. To add a new property to your selected element, simply click the + icon next to the Style section. Choose your property and it will be added to your properties panel so you only have to see the properties that you are currently using.

This new level of hierarchy is perfect for multiple subsidiaries within a company, different product teams, multiple teams within a product team, and even agencies working with various clients.
