Adding Grid Lines to a Manual Column Grid

Use this procedure to add lines to a manual grid. A manual grid allows maximum control over the grid, but requires that you define the exact number and position of grid lines.

  1. Select the column grid to which you want to add lines.
  2. Add grid lines:
    If you want to… Then…
    add grid lines to the X axis of the grid click Column Grid tabX Axis panelAdd Grid Line . Then, specify the position on the X axis where you want to add a line.
    add grid lines to the Y axis of the grid click Column Grid tabY Axis panelAdd Grid Line . Then, specify the position on the Y axis where you want to add a line.
  3. Alternatively, on the Properties palette, click Bays for the X and Y axis, and change the number of lines in the Bays worksheet.
  4. To add a line, click under the last number in the Bays list.

    A new line is inserted with default values for distance and spacing. You can edit these values by clicking them and entering new values.

    NoteYou cannot enter a line number for the new line. The line number is provided by the application after you close the worksheet.
  5. Click OK.
