Common on-screen keyboard cells in The Grid 2

In addition to the letters of the alphabet, there are a number of other uses for cells you may want to use. Here is a summary of these, with details of how to recreate them.

We have drawn symbols for many of these, and these can be found in the ‘Sensory Pics’ folder on your computer. Recall that if a cell jumps to another grid then the symbol is determined by the target grid.
