Thanks for the answer. At least I know this function has not been changed and it should work the same way as in CS5.
In my installation of CS6 there no space created between the frames of the grid:
And when the images are placed, I get this of course:
The only way I can create space is using the CTRL key plus arrow keys, or drag using the SPACE key.
I am puzzled. It is not a showstopper, but I miss the way it is supposed to work.
I practically never use this feature, but my recollection is that the gap is the same that is set for gutter width in the initial document setup dialog. Changing that in Layout > Margins and Columns would probably do the trick.

Correct: setting the gutter width in Layout > Margins and Columns did the trick. The gutter width was 0. Many thanks.
I occasionally need this feature to save time. This is the first time I run into this.
I finally figured it out. Start by clicking on the frame box, then while holding the box that you are creating, tap the right arrow and it will make more horizontally.
If you want to elimate space between boxes, continue holding down the mouse and also the Ctrl button and then toggle the left or right arrow. There is some space in between them, which I didn't want so I hit the Ctrl button and it eliminated the space.
If you want more rows, let go of the Ctrl button and then toggle the up or down arrow button. If you want to adjust them, hold the Ctrl button and toggle up and down to control spacing.
For me it works a bit different amandawise88:
First part is the same: activate the Frame Tool and while holding the mouse button and click up arrow key I'll make more boxes vertically; if right arrow key—more horizontally. To decrease the number of boxes click down or left arrow key.
If I want to eliminate space between boxes, I need to continue holding down the mouse and then click Cmnd (I'm Mac user) and click the down arrow key to decrease the gap between boxes. To increase it I have to hold down Cmnd and keep clicking the upper arrow key.
If I click space while holding the mouse key, I'll be able to move the whole set of boxes to another place in the document.
