Prime 6 does not appear to have a way to produce a grid on a 2D plot. Without a grid, plot values are difficult to read. Hopefully this glaring omission will be corrected in Prime 7. It would be good to have major and minor grid lines, of different colors and weights, but as a minimum the plotting features of MathCAD15 should be included. A related helpful feature would be to be able to control the orientation of polar plots. A current need is for a polar plot with zero degrees pointing to the left rather than to the right, with positive angles opening counterclockwise. One could imagine zero degrees straight up, with positive angles opening clockwise, or other orientations and directions.
Grids are possible when using a Chart Component. It is a powerful tool if a bit quirky. It is not the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) feature it was supposed to be. In best practice, have two monitors. Your Mathcad document open on one and the Chart Component editor on the other. As you make changes watch what it does in your document. Don't pay attention to how it appears in the editor.
It's the third button on your Math ribbon menu:
