GRID 2 – How to link different pages? (Tutorial)

In this section we will talk about how to link different pages so it will allow us to navigate and classify the content in the same User.

grid 2 tut 12  This is the new command we will introduce today.

For information about how to create a user and add words, please look the previous tutorial GRID 2 – Creating and Adding new words (Tutorial).


  • When you want to change between GRID screen and the tutorial in this website keep press the key Alt and later press tab.
  • You can click the pictures to watch them in a big size (later you can go back through the back arrow in the internet explorer).
  • The numbers with the description are shown also in the picture.
  • In the end of the post there is a videotutorial.


For showing an example we will open the default Symbol Talker B.

grid 2 tut 1

– We will click with the mouse “At school”.

– We must go to the section Edit.  You can also type F11.

Be aware that when you are in SHOW MENU (option in edit or F12) you can not edit the cells. It only allows to PLAY and see what the cells can do. Therefore, is the right option when the kids are using it.

With EDIT MENU mode you can not play the cells and see what happens, but allows you to modify the cells and the structure of the grid.

Now you can delete the cells you don´t want (press the cell and later the key Delete of the keyboard), add/remove rows or columns, and edit the content of the cells. You can also click the cell and drag it to another position in the grid.
