Is it possible to draw layers 'outside' of the canvas, as in outside (and on top of) a phone frame? I want to add annotations/comments to projects, for clients/teammates to understand which parts are interactive etc. See attached photo as a rough example. Cheers!

Make the superLayer = Framer.Device.phone . Then position accordingly

^ Nick Bewley absolute legend. Thanks. Worth noting for anyone else, make sure you add this line somewhere to stop layers being clipped by the phone frame:
Framer.Device.phone.clip = false

Nick Bewley

Good point Danny. Haha I'll take it!

Ah, forgot about the clipping! Not as sexy but a solution I did was bind a "show hint" layer to a key or long-press on screen that would highlight the areas instead of having them go outside of the canvas.

yep - made the Comment module after I saw this post. just forgot to post it here :) still, tishos hints module is probably a better approach for highlighting interactivity: https://github.com/tisho/framer-hints
