Using Grid 3’s commands to change settings

Grid 3 has a number of commands that allow you to control and change your settings – e.g. dwell times, voice speed and more.

It is important to note that these adjustments are only maintained until the grid set is closed or the settings dialog is opened. It will always change back to the settings that you have within the Grid 3 settings dialog.
