Adding grid lines to a plot in Prime 7.0

Adding grid lines to a plot in Prime 7.0

I am using Mathcad Prime 7.0

Attempting to add grid lines to a plot but the information in the help section for 7.0 does not match what I am seeing in the application.

According to help I am supposed to click the Axes tab in the Ribbon then click Axes Styles: X Gridlines

However the only tab in the Ribbon I have is Plot. There is an Axes area under that but there is no option to change styles.

Guessing there is something I need to turn on or change to I can see and make changes to the Axes Styles but as yet I have not been able to find what that is.

No way to delete my original post but I did figure this one out.

 

Found out that Chart Components and Plots are not the same thing and thus I can't make changes to the plot based on instruction meant for Chart Components.

 

Will just stick with the native Plots and live with no grid lines.

Thanks for the link to your other posting and the note about where I posted this.  First post in the community so clearly more to learn.

 

I copied your Grid equations into my file and was able to add the grid lines just how I wanted them so exactly what I needed.

 

Also learned about Areas which I had not seen before so that was an added bonus that I can use in the future.
