what is this frame thing you guys are talking about, I don't see what you
are talking about ?

talking about groups, any reason why the expand is blocking everything else

> No, the frame nodes are a new (experimental) feature purely for layout
> organization. Groups on the other hand allow instancing (use in
> multiple places), but they are more work to set up and only one of
> them can be edited at a time (currently).
> The idea of frame is to separate the layout part from the instancing
> functionality. If you want to group nodes to make your tree more
> easily navigatable you can use a frame. If you want to create a
> complex setup that can be reused (often called an "asset") you use a
> node group.
> That concept is not totally smooth yet, both the old group nodes and
> the frames need a bit of testing, discussion and work, but let's do
> that in another thread :)
