Clicker Grid

Creating & Editing Grids

This is a guide to the basics of creating and editing your own clicker grids.


Access Methods

One of the great features of Clicker 4 is that it can be accessed by mouse, rollerball, joystick, mouse dwell, touchscreen, single switch, or double switch scanning. This tutorial requires you to download the free Flash plugin if it isn't already on your computer.


Trapping the Mouse

Keep your user's mouse (or touchscreen point) where you want it and stop them accessing menus either on purpose or accidentally.



Extending Clicker

The nice folk at Cricksoft, along with many teachers, have been putting free premade clicker grids on the web for us to download. Find out how to access them here!
