Viewing Microsoft Word Cell Grid lines -Seeing the Label Update

In our old post we showed how to make Cell Grid Lines visible in Microsoft Word 2007. We’ll need an update to that. It’s pretty much the same, now it just looks different. For Microsoft Word 2010, or Office 365, you’ll find it under the Design tab, then click on Borders, and select “View Gridlines” from the drop down menu.

The cat address labels above are on the ML-3000 address labels.

Seeing the Label

Ever open up a label template and it looks like a blank page? For instance, our ML-5000 label has 50 labels per page, but all you see is a white. The ML-5000 is a UPC barcode label. People use it for all kinds of different things, not just UPC barcodes. Even though you don’t see the labels, most of the time, there is not a problem with the template. The Microsoft Word template is not blank, chances are the problem is that the grid lines are just not visible. Ok, now where has Microsoft Word hidden the view cell boarders feature? ……..Found it. It’s under Table Tools, Design, Borders, View Gridlines.
