Apparently, there's an issue with Excel 2013 after Microsoft ran an update in October 2013. The proposal in the mean time is to downgrade to 2010 or to at least get an Excel 2010 to continue on until Microsoft fixes this...Hopefully sooner than later!!
Hope you can help me: I would like the printing lines to show. I've ticked the box under Advanced, but the dotted lines are white. How do I go about changing the color to black in order to actually see where the dotted lines are?
