Hello All
I am using TC 2016 Deluxe and sometimes when I start a new drawing from a template, the grid lines do not show. I have clicked on "Grid X2", as well as any other icon I can. No show.
Please tell me what I am doing wrong.
Thank you

One thing to check,  go to options menu - drawing setup - grid, and check that the style is set to 'Lines',  some templates are set to points which can be almost impossible to see.

The Grid is possibly turned off. The "Alt+G" hotkey should turn it on. If it's still blank, right-click on the Grid icon to go to the "Options / Grid" properties. Check to see if the "Style" is set to Points or Lines. Points are nearly impossible to see. I believe their size is 1 pixel.

Ditto ;D

Tangential, is there a quick option to reset grid to template without delving still-arcane sub-menus to *again* fix a low-flying cat's grid-spacing switch to mega-feet or 'thous' ??

Not to reset to template, but right-clicking on the header's grid button opens the drawing setup|grid settings box directly, revealing the grid settings that the cat's applied.  There's also a grid setup button a little further along that you can left-click on to open the same settings box.
