Adding grids to the Active Grid list

The Active Grid drop-down list contains all the polygon grids and layers that are currently loaded in your map. Though you must initially add a grid to the Reviewer Overview window, either by loading it from a database or adding one in your table of contents, you can add more on the Reviewer Overview Window Properties dialog box. As each grid is added, it is appended to the drop-down list and added to the Reviewer Overview window.
