Did you leave 1/4 inch around it for expansion?

Jigsaw is the answer.

How do you put the vent in? Glue it? If you screw it won’t the tile crack?

Thanks for posting this video!  My vent opening is only about 3 inches from the wall and the boards I plan to use are 4&5/16″ wide.  I’m thinking I might have to put 2 small pieces behind the vent.  Would these pieces be secure enough there?  I am worried they would walk a little towards the wall gap.  Or can I make these a little tighter to the vent and wall since they are so small without worrying about buckling from expansion?  And lastly, would the click and lock design hold them flat like the other boards?  Thanks for any input!
