I am now producing a small magazine for a 55+ community in Arizona and have run across some vexing problems in how my predecessor did things. And, I am unable to contact her.

  I need to change the shape of the grid on the attached page, but have no idea how she created it,

  It is fully editable, except for the grid lines.

  Any suggestions, or should I simply start from scractch?

The grid is an InDesign table. It should be perfectly editable if you know how to work with InDesign tables.

If you're unfamiliar with working with tables, it might be worth looking at Diane Burns video course (free for 30 days I believe) on LinkedIn Learning.

There is no need to start from scratch. The grid lines are fully editable. Double click on the table then hover over a line. The cursor will convert into a two-directional arrow. Left click and move the line. Just make sure you have editable space. The first row of classes is already as small as it can go based on the settings for Table>cell options>Text.

Yes, as mentioned, use the Type tool and hover over the gridlines. You can also select the table (click in a cell and press ESC) via the Table menu. Table menu > Cell options > Strokes & Fills. As Steve mentioned, my LinkedIn Learning course covers this in detail.
