How do I move a pencil drawing to another frame? 0 Recommended Answers 2 Replies 4 Upvotes

When I select objects, I get a right and left arrow on the edges of my screen for moving them the next or previous frame.  When I select something I've drawn with the pencil tool using the select tool, I get nothing.

I'm trying to do this to overcome the shortcoming that you can't duplicate pencil drawings.

Hello!

Welcome to the Jamboard forum! I would recommend copying the frame by using the frame selector tool at the top, which will give you a duplicate frame that includes the object you want to copy.  Then delete the rest of the information on the frame.
 
I hope this helps.

So the answer to my question is no.  You can't select a drawing and move it to a new frame.  You can't, for example, copy some text you already wrote and add it to an existing frame.  You can't merge content from two frame.  Finally, you can't copy something you wrote and have it twice on the same frame.

In short, you can't move a selection to a new frame or duplicate it.  This is quite limiting.  How does one request a feature (though surely this must be one of the most requested features)?
