Grid View - View Settings

Safelink's Grid View Settings provide a new way to view and interact with the contents of your workspace. You can view file data about each document in your workspace and change which order your document columns appear.

You can adjust the columns, add grid borders and row numbers to your files to make things look just a touch tidier.
