Changing the horizontal and vertical resolution spacing in inches does not change the spacing in spaces. How do I get grid lines to work?
Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice->Appearance
Scroll down to "Grid" and change Automatic to Black.
Why the automatic color is white grid on white background is a mystery known only to the all-knowing developers. It's still worth more than I paid.
Oh - and they aren't lines, they are dots.
