    Printing a grid drawing object (2003)

    One of our users used the Draw, Grid to make a full sized grid. But, it prints a blank page. Also blank in print preview. How is this supposed to work?

    The drawing grid is solely meant as a visual aid for positioning objects on the page; it will never be printed.

    If you want a grid that will be printed, you could place a rectangle (from the Drawing toolbar) in the page header, with the following properties:
    - It covers the entire page.
    - It is set to be Behind Text in the Layout tab of Format | AutoShape.
    - The fill pattern for the rectangle is set to a square grid in the Colors and lines tab of Format | AutoShape.
