Grid set settings


This lesson walks you through how to change the settings on a grid set. Change the Grid set name, icon, description and settings.

Editing settings

Open a grid set. Select Menu from the top of the page.

Select Settings > Grid set (You can also use F10 to access Settings)


This is the name that will be displayed in Grid explorer and what will be visible if and when the grid set is shared at any time

Select the default language for the grid set

Editing this changes the cell icon as it appears in Grid Explorer

This is a brief description of the grid set and its intended use

Choose what will happen in the writing area when the cell is selected, either:

    • Speak text
    • Move cursor

    • Choose whether a symbol appears in the text writing area

Here you can also select the Symbol library (s) for the grid set.


All available resources for the grid set can be linked here by URL.

Tip: Grid set manuals can be accessed from the Menu when the grid is in use

Grid set analysis

Incompatibility issues will also be recorded here e.g. if the grid set will not work in Grid for iPad.

Grid sizes
Check whether grid sizes are consistent across the grid set. This is a useful tool when using or creating grid sets to use alongside keyguards.

This information is useful to ensure the symbol set is consistent throughout the grid set.

This shows any information on any styles that are applied throughout the grid set.
