Frames provide empty space outside of normal measures. They can also contain text or pictures. MuseScore has two kinds of frames:

Horizontal
Horizontal Frame
Horizontal frames break a system. The width is adjustable and the height equals the system height. Horizontal frames can be used to separate a coda.
Vertical
Vertical Frame
Vertical frames provide empty space between or before systems. The height is adjustable and the width equals the system width. Vertical frames are used to place title, subtitle, lyricist or composer. If you create a title, a vertical frame is placed before the first measure automatically, if it is not already there.
