Cluster content and navigate with areas

Give structure to a mural without losing its flexibility.


Areas act as frames and allow you to navigate the mural.

In this article you will learn how to:

  • add areas
  • group elements into areas
  • absorb elements into areas
  • create freeform and grid areas
  • use areas to create outlines
  • use the presentation mode



  • Inside a mural, you'll find the areas in the frameworks tab. Just drag & drop them to the mural.
  • From here you can, add a title to the area, change its color, toggle the title or change the font size.
  • To select all the content inside an area, right click on the title and click on select all. This makes it easier to move content around.




A quick way to add areas around content is by using 'group into area'. Select all the elements that you want to group, right-click, and pick 'group into area' in the drop down.




You can also group content by using 'absorb into area'. Place an area on top of the content you want to group, then click on 'absorb' in the formatting menu. 





There are two types of areas, freeform and grid areas. You can switch between them by clicking on the freeform or grid option in the formatting menu.





  • Each area adds a section to the mural outline. You can access the mural outline by clicking on the bulleted list icon in the top toolbar.
  • Each time you click on each section, you're taken to that specific area inside the mural. Navigating around a mural becomes super easy!



If you want to present your mural, click on the 'start presentation' button.

The presentation mode allows you to navigate around the areas just like a slideshow. Anyone who accesses a view-only link of the mural will be taken directly to the mural in presentation mode.
