How do I hide a cell or prevent it being selected in Grid 3?

If you are supporting a user, hiding cells is a good way to reveal content over time to help with progression, or to make the cell count lower at first to prepare for revealing the full grid set at a later date. Inaccessible cells are useful when making grid sets with titles or question cells, so they are not accessible next to the content or answers.  

  1. Open your chosen grid set and browse to the menu bar (three lines, top left corner) and select Edit grids.
  2. Select a cell, browse to the Home tab at the top of the screen and select the Cell accessibility drop-down menu.
  3. Select the option you need for your cell.

Note: you can select multiple cells and change the cell accessibility on all of them in one go.

The cell accessibility menu.

There are 4 cell accessibility options:

  • Fully accessible – This cell will be visible to all access methods. 
  • Pointer and touch only – This means the cell can only be accessed using a pointer device (e.g. mouse) or touch screen. This is useful if you want to create a row of settings cells, useful for a situation in which a third party may need to quickly adjust settings like dwell time during an assessment, for example. These cells would not be triggered by the eye gaze of the user.
  • Not accessible – The cell will not respond to any access method. This could be used to ensure that activity can be directed away from certain cells during a lesson or activity. Note: a non-accessible cell will not show a highlight around it even when selected. 
  • Hidden – These cells will only appear when the grid set is in Edit mode.
