Saved Phrases in The Grid 2

You can allow Grid 2 users to save their sentences in cells using “saved phrases” auto content.

Each grid can have its own set of saved phrases, so you can have many grids with different saved phrases on.

Setting up a grid for saved phrases

Create saved phrases cells

First you need to make some Saved Phrases auto content cells. To make these cells, go into Edit Mode (F11) and select one or more cells (you can use the control key to select multiple cells).

From the Cell Options on the left, select Auto Content > Saved Phrases.

These cells will now display the saved phrases for this grid (each grid has its own set of saved phrases, so you can store lots of phrases on different grids).

Add a phrase cell

You now need to make some command cells to save the phrases. The most flexible command to use is the Save Phrase command.

Using your saved phrases grid

Saving a phrase

Type a sentence into your workspace as normal (using symbol, prediction or any other tools).

Now select the Save Phrase cell that you made. The cell will change colour (to your indicator colour) to indicate that it is active. Now click on a saved phrases cell. Your sentence (from your workspace) will be saved in to the cell that you selected.

Recalling a phrase

To type a phrase that you have previously stored, simply click the cell with the phrase in. The saved phrase will be typed into your workspace.

Note that if the Save Phrase cell is lit up then it will save the current sentence into the cell instead of recalling the phrase, as described above.

Other ways to use saved phrases

There is also a Save Phrase In Cell command for saving the sentence in a specified cell. For example, you could have a cell which says “save phrase number 3”.

The Set Phrase command allows you to specify the phrase for a cell as part of the command instead of using the text from the workspace. One use for this is to make a cell that will clear some or all of the saved phrases on a grid.
