Google Sheets is a great alternative to expensive productivity programs like Excel – Sheets offers much of the same functionality, though organised a little differently. If you aren’t used to Sheets, it can be difficult to know what to do – for example when it comes to gridlines.
Gridlines are the outlines that mark the limits of each cell, the borders, so to speak. They can be helpful for telling apart individual segments of your sheet, but if you want, you can turn them off.
Simply click on the View option in your ribbon, and then on the option Gridlines.
The lines will disappear from view – but only from the Display view. If you want to remove them from the print view as well, you’ll have to do so separately. To remove them from the print view, you’ll have to click on the File option in your menu ribbon and then click on Print.
The print dialogue option will open, and you’ll need to click on the Formatting options. The section will unfold and reveal the option you need. Untick the Show gridlines option, and the lines will disappear in your print preview – that means that if and when you actually print your file, it will print without the lines.
