    Excel 2016 - Random Dark Gridlines in PDF


    I've got an Excel 2016 spreadsheet that I am printing using the "Microsoft Print to PDF" option. I want the spreadsheet to show gridlines. Everything works fine except there are four cells in the spreadsheet where the gridlines are significantly darker than is true for all of the other cells. If I uncheck gridlines, all the cells are consistent - no gridlines, borders, or underlines except where I have intentionally placed them.

    I guess I could use outline borders on all of the cells to accomplish what I want, but that's a pain. Any solutions?

    By the way, the darker gridlines do not appear on the print preview.

    :)

  2. Excel 2007, highlighting or bolding a single gridline

    Hello,

    I need some help. I am creating a chart using Excel 2007 and, I am trying to figure out a way to highlight, bold or glow a particular gridline using Excel 2007. I want to place emphasis on a particular frame rate by adjusting it's horizontal gridline. However, the problem is that Excel 2007 will not allow you to mouse click on a particular grid :shadedshu.

    If I recall correctly Excel 2003 allowed me to mouse click on the grid of choice and make changes to it as I see fit. With Excel 2007 if you mouse click on 1 grid all the grids are chosen, thus the problem. I've been looking around but I do not know the technical term used for this.

    As you can see from the example above all the gridlines are highlighted (called Glow in Excel 2007). All I want to do is highlight just 1 (maybe 2 of them). Is there a way to do this?

    To further clarify I want to be able to change the gridline to look something like this:

    Where in this example the max FPS uses a green gridline while the min uses a red gridline.

    OK, more info. So long as I save them in this state, both Gridlines and Headings deselected for printing they SAVE the settings.

    But when I select the Gridlines only , save, exit and reopen the workbook it reverts to Gridlines unselected and the Headings checked.

    Sinister forces are at work!
