How to hide the rest cell

Grid now has the ability to hide the rest cell for you if you don’t need it. This feature is linked to your access method.

If you open a grid set with a rest cell, but are using an access method that does not require a rest, the rest cell will be removed and the chat writing area will expand to fill the gap.

For this to work, you will need to:

  1. Make sure the rest cell is located next to your chat area
  2. Add the ‘Show only when available’ command to your rest cell
  3. Set the ‘Show only when available’ command to ‘Dwell’ (l’ if you have a SmartNAV user for example)


If the rest cell still still appears, you may still have an eye gaze camera selected in your access settings.

Navigate to Settings > Access > Eye gaze > Camera and set your camera to ‘None’.
