OMG, I thought I had done that!!! I guess frustration ruled rather than common sense! Thank you so much!
The total idiot,
In future you'll probably want to remove your signature when replying by email. I've done it for you this time.
THANK YOU SO MUCH
Thanks. Accidentally brought up grid; in my panic was overlooking the remedy. I hate it when I do that.
This post answered my question but what I wonder is why Adobe doesn't put a checkmark next to the items that are turned on. They do this for some selections. I looked through that menu a couple of times before coming to this site. If the grid is on then show the menu item checked. Then I know to uncheck it to turn this off. It pains me to use Adobe tools. I need it sometimes but really every time I have to go looking on Google to find answers.
