You can change several global settings for OpenRepGrid which will influence the way grids are displyed. You can promt the available settings by calling settings().

Settings for OpenRepGrid
------------------------

Printing a grid to the console
    show.scale : TRUE (show grid scale info?)
    show.meta  : TRUE (show grid meta data?)
    show.trim  : 30 (number of chars to trim strings to)
    show.cut   : 20 (max no of chars on the sides of a grid)
    c.no       : TRUE (print construct id?)
    e.no       : TRUE (print element id?)

By default information about the scale and grid meta data is displayed.

META DATA:
Number of constructs:  9 
Number of elements:  8 

SCALE INFO:
The grid is rated on a scale from 1 (left pole) to 7 (right pole)

RATINGS:

To change the settings enter the new parameters as name=value pairs. To turn off the display of the scale and meta information type in

settings(show.scale=FALSE, show.meta=FALSE)

Now all grids are displayed without this information:

Other settings that can be modified are maximal length of the construct that is displayed. Changing show.cutto 40 will prevent that the names of the constructs are cut off.

In order to not print the number of constructs and elements you can turn off this options by

settings(c.no=FALSE, e.no=FALSE)
