What are writing areas in Grid 3?

Writing areas in Grid 3 are where your text is displayed or entered. Different writing areas can be used for different features in Grid 3, and will interact with different commands. These commands can be found in the same category as the writing area you need. i.e. Chat and writing for the chat writing area, web browser for the web search writing area etc.

The chat writing area 

The chat writing area is the most commonly used writing area. Write cells and word lists will input their words into the chat writing area, so it can be edited and spoken out later. To add a chat writing area:

  1. Open your chosen grid set, browse to the menu bar (three lines, top left corner) and select Edit grid.
  2. Highlight a cell, or group of cells, and select Create cell from the left hand side.
  3. Select the Chat and Writing category, scroll down to the Chat heading and select the Chat writing area, then press OK.
