RE: Grid not showing
more of the last post.

It could be different things, check your settings as these, assuming View -> Show Grid is enabled.

You can set up a default grid, Edit -> Preferences -> Default Grid
This is my setup http://i.imgur.com/g8C8TuN.jpg does not show very well over gray.

If the grid colour is the same as the background colour white-on-white or black-on-black you will not see it
If the grid spacing is larger than the canvas size you will not see it.

You can set up a grid, per image. The settings are saved with the .xcf file when you save that.

Image -> configure grid
Something like this http://i.imgur.com/xyqVVhO.jpg

Maybe change the color and spacing see if anything shows.

RE: Grid not showing
