Updates

We’re constantly improving Framer. See the latest features and updates.

Insert menu component folders

The latest iteration of the insert menu now supports viewing folders of components from within your project and those installed from packages. It’s fully integrated with the search field, presenting the folder hierarchy as breadcrumbs allowing you to easily navigate back and forth. Based on the fantastic feedback we’ve received from the community, we’ll be making a number of improvements to the insert menu experience in the coming weeks, with a particular focus on navigation and grouping.

Updated share link format

The format of the generated URL for a project’s share link has been updated to support the inclusion of the project title in the URL. This ensures share links are predictable enough that you can tell what project a link is for whilst remaining difficult to guess. We’ve also decided to remove the version segment from the path—once project versioning ships you will be able to generate unique share links for each version of a project.
