Editing a cell in Grid 2

First, you need to enter Editing mode. You can do this by pressing F11, or selecting Edit > Editing mode.

Double-clicking on a cell will open the Edit Cell window. The Edit Cell window is divided into three regions


  • On the left is the task panel. These tools provide quick ways to make common cells.
  • The top of the window contains the cell appearance settings. Here you can change the way that the selected cell looks.
  • The bottom of the window holds the command list. The commands dictate what will happen when you press the cell.

Making a vocab cell

A vocab cell is designed to hold a small chunk of vocabulary that can be easily inserted into a sentence. As well as text, a vocab cell can also contain a symbol which represents the vocabulary.
The task panel provides a quick way of making a vocab cell. Simply type the word(s) into the Vocab Cell box in the top left of the Edit Cell window and click Ok. The cell will automatically be populated with the word(s) you entered, and a symbol from the symbol library in use.

Changing the Picture

If you want to use a different picture or symbol in the cell, click on the Change Picture button in the Edit Cell window. From the Select Picture window you can search for a symbol from the current library by typing into the search box, browse individual libraries using the tabs at the top of the window, or use your own picture by clicking Browse For File.

Screen capture button

The screen capture button allows you to quickly bring in pictures from other sources, such as a digital camera, web page or a picture saved on your computer. Simply click on the Capture button then drag a box around the image you would like displayed in the cell.

The picture editor

The picture editor allows you to modify pictures by changing colours or adding extra detail.
