1 Minute Admin Tips: Gridlines

Formatting documents in Microsoft Word can be tricky at times. Ever find that you insert a text box or picture and your layout goes completely bonkers? Or want to line up things nicely but can’t get it just so?

This little tip might just save your sanity. Turn on the gridlines and you will see a fine grid behind your work. You can then use the horizontal and vertical axes to line things up to your heart’s content. Ta da!

Method: Go to ‘View’ then check the ‘Gridlines’ box (highlighted yellow below)

Note: The gridlines do not show when you print the document.
