By default gridlines in table/list views are turned off. I know it's a personal choice but I would prefer the default to be on in all tabular views, which makes them much easier to read.
Alternatively, could we have a "turn them all on" button which saves having to go through them all individually to turn on gridlines.
And if you didn't know about this feature at all it's not surprising as it's buried in Tools > Preferences > Colours and Fonts > Show Gridlines
You can highlight them all using the shift key or the ccontrol key one at a time and then click the box twice to make it show the check in the box and it will turn them all on. I can probably write a utility that will turn them all on. I'll put it on my list of todos for SnapInTools.
I always swtch them on as Stan does.
I get calls from customers complaining they're not there after a re-install by their IT support who don;t know about this and lots of other things too!
(with tongue firmly planted in cheek)
I like that they are off by default, because at a glance you can tell if the person that installed Act! actually knows there stuff or not....
This is actually +1 for having them on by default.
Ben - I agree about gridlines off shows that Act! has been reinstalled by a non-Act! consultant.
However there are many other things also that give clues as we experts know.
It's quite funny when a client has a problem and tells you that no-one has touched it and it must be an Act! problem and you show them the evidence! ;-)
i always turn them on. the PM thinks this is as bad idea. i'd like to see gradiant stuff like the web version in Contact List view.
