Grid view mode is a feature found in many of the Topaz plug-ins that allows you to preview multiple presets within a collection at a time. This is specifically helpful for compare and contrast when browsing through effects, especially in programs like ReStyle, which contains over 1,000 presets to choose from.

Within grid mode you can switch collections, take snapshots (camera icon), favorite (or star) a preset, and search for a specific look using keywords. See this article on how to use the search capabilities for additional information.

To change the number of views per row in the grid, go to Menu-> Preferences and you can then select anywhere from the range of 2-5 views per row.
