What are styles and how do I use them in The Grid 2?

To ensure that cells have consistent formatting throughout a grid set, The Grid 2 provides a styles system. If you are familiar with styles in Microsoft Word, this is a similar system. Styles can be used to change the shape, colour and font of cells.

Preset Styles 

When editing a cell, you can choose to give it a preset style. There are some preset styles that are always available, such as Vocab Cell and Jump Cell, or you can add your own preset styles. 
Editing a preset style will change all cells that have been assigned that style. For example, if you change the background colour of the Vocab Cell preset style, the background colour of all cells using this style will change. 

  1. Open your chosen user, browse to Edit in the menu bar at the top of The Grid 2 and select Editing Mode.

Individual Styles 

Occasionally, you may want a cell to have a unique style that is different from all the other cells. To do this, select Specify this cell style individually option at the top of the Cell Style window. This cell will not be affected by any changes you make to preset styles.
