Creating and editing a write cell


What is a Write cell?

Write cells write text into the writing area.

Many grid sets come already populated with hundreds of words but you may want to add your own or edit existing words. In this lesson, we will learn how to create and edit write cells.

Creating a new write cell in Grid 3

Go to Edit mode by pressing F11 or using the drop-down menu in the top left and selecting Edit Grid.

Select and empty cell.

When the cell is highlighted select Create Cell or Add Command from the left-hand column.

A new window will open, offering you commands you can use in this grid.

The Write command we need for this lesson is in the Favourites section.

Select Write and press OK.

The command will appear on the left.

Write your word either directly into the cell or into the command in the left column. The Same cell label tab is set as On by default. If you want the words in the writing area to be different from the label, select Off.

Grid will suggest a suitable symbol to use in the cell. You can search for more symbols and images by selecting Find Picture.


Editing an existing write cell in Grid

You may want to change a Write on an existing grid set.

Select Edit grid (F11) from the drop-down menu.

Select the cell you want to edit.

You can change the label in 3 ways:

  • Select Change label in the menu
  • Right-click the cell and select Change label
  • Change the text in the column on the left
  • Press F2

When you have finished editing your cells, click on Finish Editing. If you are happy with the changes, select Yes and exit.
