Boords Changelog

A record of new features, fixes, and improvements
Arabic & Hebrew character rendering

We’d had reports of a couple of issues with Arabic & Hebrew characters rendering incorrectly in PDF exports. Specifically, Arabic characters weren’t being joined correctly, and Hebrew characters were occassionally being rendered in the wrong order. Happily, both these issues are now resolved!

Now you can add photos directly from Unsplash into a blank storyboard. No need to open the Image Editor first!

Storyboard Zooming


If you work on storyboards with lots of frames, you’ll be delighted to learn you can now control the size of the frames in your storyboards using our new Zoom feature!

Japanese character fix

We’ve fixed a bug which caused some PDFs containing Japanese characters to export incorrectly.

Increase 'Blank Frames' maximum

You can now create a blank storyboard with up to 60 blank frames, as opposed to the original limit of 30.

Inline comment button


You can now add comments by clicking the new “Comment” button on a given storyboard frame.

Image Library

We’ve launched an image library! Before, you had to draw or upload your own images to make a storyboard. Now, thanks to our Iconfinder and Unsplash integrations, anyone can create high-quality storyboards using professional quality illustrations, icons, and photos.

Email notifications for 'complete' comments

We’ve added a new email notification when a comment is marked as ‘complete’. These emails are sent using the same notification settings as the rest of your storyboard.

Improved comment performance

We’ve improved performance when commenting on large storyboards. This is the first of a few performance improvements slated for the coming weeks, so watch this space!

Paste images into the Image Editor

You can now paste images on your clipboard directly into the Image Editor. You can also paste images straight into the grid view, too.

New settings section

We’ve revamped our settings section, so it’s now easier to find billing, account, and collaboration settings.
