Changelog

We've recently added two much-requested features geared around editing lots of frames at once, namely deleting and creating frames in batches.

To take advantage of the bulk delete function, select the frames you want to remove by holding command and clicking on the image for a given frame. Selected frames will appear lighter in colour and have a grey border around them. Then when you're ready, click "Delete selected" and you're done!

multi-delete

You can also now create multiple frames by dragging images into your storyboard, even when the storyboard has existing frames. Simply drop images into the storyboard edit screen from your computer and they'll automatically be created as frames.

Being able to output PDFs in different layouts has been one of the most requested features since Boords launched, and today we're delighted to announce that we've added three new PDF templates!

pdf-layout

In addition to the 3x2 layout which comes as standard, users with a Pro or Team plan can export their storyboards with four frames per page, two frames per page or one frame per page.

Duplicate and Move your Storyboards

We're delighted to be able to launch two much requested features today. You can now move your Storyboards between projects, and also duplicate an existing Storyboard within the same project. Both options can be found under a new dropdown menu on the Project dashboard.

High resolution images

Allows pro users to upload images up to 1200 x 675 pixels. Also introduces a few usability improvements, like moving the Storyboard icons to the left hand sidebar.

Free versioning

We've moved the Versioning feature from Pro to Free, so it's now available for everyone!

Archive single versions

Added the much-requested ability to archive a single version of a Storyboard, not the whole thing.

Improved shareable view

The Storyboard editing and sharing navigation has undergone a thorough overhaul, the result being that the Shareable view of a Storyboard is much more intuitive to access and use.

Popular features like the ability to change the Storyboard password and access a Shareable storyboard URL have been made much more prominent. The Boords watermark on the Shareable view is now also removed for Pro accounts, mirroring the behaviour on PDFs.

Billing

This release encompasses a major re-work of the signup prompt and billing mechanisms. The payment form has also been extracted from the billing page to make it more understandable.

Archived Lists

Previously archived lists were at the bottom of the dashboard. This release puts them in the sidebar together with archived storyboards (which were previously invisible).

Archive view

Introduced an unarchiving system for projects and storyboards.

More efficient PDF layout

Improvements have been made to the PDF layout to maximise the space available for text and image.
