Deselect the Gridlines
Some prototypers like to switch the grid on and off, using it to help them with
alignment; others do not need this visual aid. If you add the Forms toolbar, there is a
toggle button to turn the grid off and on.
Now you will change the default Excel row and column dimensions so that they
support user interface design and prototyping. Changing the width of the columns
creates a much tighter grid, allowing finer control over the layout of text and
graphics. A slightly taller row height better accommodates a standard Windows input
box or drop-down menu. You will see the value of this change in subsequent
chapters. The grid can reflect the flexibility and constraints of either your development
environment or your design concept.
