There are a number of ways to kick start your first user flow in Overflow. You can iterate upon a sample flow, sync your Sketch artboards to a new Overflow document, or start off with a blank one and build with basic images & shapes. After rearranging your elements and think you're ready to go, starting connecting them to build your first user flow.
Boards are extremely useful to organize your flow into smaller sub-flows and building alternative or extra flows. You can go wild and create a Board just to experiment with things you'd never imagine doing. Don't worry though, you can hide them from Presentation and in the Share link.
The Boards menu is found on the left of your window, where you can create, rename, delete, hide/show, export and rearrange boards.
Overflow ships with a pair of ready-made themes, light & dark. In a way, a Theme is a stylesheet that applies to the whole document and includes the board background color and certain styles for all elements. Element Styles that are set by the Theme can be overridden when you manually change the elements Style. The Board background color can also change by right-clicking on the Board thumbnail.
