How Can I Turn Off PhotoShop Grid?

Mark Adamsbaum , Jun 12, 2004; 01:44 a.m.

This isn't the most earthshaking question but here it is...Whenever I open a photo file in PS7 it comes up with the grid already on. I have to go into the "View" menu and uncheck "extras" to get rid of it. Those two extra mouse clicks exhaust me ;). I've gone through my preferences and options but can't seem to find how to keep the grid from coming up with every photo. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

Hit CTRL-' (that is a single quote) which turns off the grid. This can also be found in the View->Show submenu.

hope this helps,

Mark, if the image was closed with the grid on, then when you open it again, it will be on. If you turn the grid off and close the image, then next time you open this image, the grid will be off. Good luck, Joe.

Got it! Thanks!
