8.06 Saving grids as MyGrids

The example grids (empty grid paper as well as graphs) are called TVGrids. These examples can be modified to use them as the basis for your own graphs. Any grid can be added to this list by saving them as MyGrids. This allows you to easily store them for later use. You can find your saved MyGrids below the list of TVGrids in ‘Grids and graphs (advanced examples)’.

You can save a selected grid as MyGrid by selecting ‘Add to MyGrids’ from the properties toolbar or context menu. Enter agrid name as a reference, then click ‘Yes’ to save the grid.
