Grid Document

The grid window contains the commands for viewing the XYZ value of grid nodes and displaying contour lines. Each grid node is indicated with a "+" in the grid window by default. The active node is highlighted with a red diamond. To move between grid nodes, press the arrow keys, or left-click a node to make it the active node. The Grid tab is automatically selected when you open or switch to a grid document.

Some commands are not available when viewing a grid file.  For example, none of the Insert and Layout commands are available and only a few of the Home and View commands are available.
