BUTTONS

CONFIGURABLE BEHAVIOUR
Touch a button to trigger your action queue. If your actions are time-based you will see progress bar until all the actions are executed. But for single actions, you can also use the repetitive mode - touch and hold the button and Metagrid will continue triggering the action as long as you want. That’s great for zooming, scrolling, scrubbing and other navigation-related functions.
