Tech/Engineering - Computers: Software
French term or phrase: pour les griser
Instructions for a corneal topographer, comes up several times when describing how to operate the software:
"Cliquer sur une ou plusieurs de ces 3 aberrations les plus connues pour les griser
Cliquer sur le groupe des aberrations de haut (high) ou de bas ordre (low) pour les griser"
Can't be sure if this means to "shade/grey" or similar, or to "unselect". No other useful context I'm afraid.
All suggestions are appreciated.

grey out
Explanation:
'greying out' an option usually means its disabled, not available.

In the question context, where the graying out is being chosen by the operator, not the comupter/software' it may mean those options are temporarily excluded from those that would otherwise be considered by the software.

agree  cc in nyc: "gray them out" (or "grey them out") seems right if Asker can't tell if this is "shade" or "unselect" or, for that matter, "disable"
