Add Infinite Grid to your viewer

How to Add infiniteGrid to your viewer using Grid manager:

To add the beta grid to your viewer, use a Grid name of "Infinite Beta", and a Login URI of "".


To use a viewer with no Grid manager:

So you have a viewer with no "Grid Manager" built in to the viewer so, I had to edit the "grids.xml" file to add IG to the long list of supported grids.

I will include the edited .xml file in this post, as well as instructions on how to do that.

This is only for Windows, as far as I am aware and I have it working perfectly, for me, on Windows 7 (x64).


1. Download the "grids.xml" file from grids.xml and save it to your desktop.

2. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to:

   C:\Program Files (x86)\ViewerName\app_settings" (64-Bit)


   "C:\Program Files\ViewerName\app_settings" (32-Bit)

Then, right-click and copy the "grids.xml" file and paste it into a folder on the desktop to backup the file.

3. Click the start button or Orb and type Run in the search.

4. In the Run window, Click "Browse" and navigate to:

   "C:\Program Files (x86)\ViewerName\app_settings"


   "C:\Program Files\ViewerName\app_settings"

DO NOT close the window that is open - Simply, right-click the "grids.xml" file on the desktop and click copy then, right-click in the Window you have open and click "Paste". Windows will ask you if you would like to "Copy & Replace", select that option, then close the window by selecting "Cancel".

If you try to overwrite the "grids.xml" file, any other way, Windows will not allow it.

5. Run your Viewer, select InfiniteGrid from the dropdown, fill in your login details & Login.

6. Enjoy & Have fun!

Also, this modified "grids.xml" file DOES NOT work for the old Meta7Viewer!


Meta7 Viewer for Windows + How-To Use in IG

Download M7Viewer from: HERE

install your m7-viewer like any other viewer, then go to your desktop, look for the shortcut to the m7 viewer, rightclick it and open the properties!

then put "-loginuri -loginpage" into the target behind the actual target (should look like "C:\program files\Meta7Viewer\Meta7Viewer.exe -loginuri -loginpage") without the brackets, mind! then press ok and start your m7 viewer, log in and enjoy your good old sight on the new grid!
