Add Section View Grid Lines

Please see attachment. The first page is what we have, the second page is what we want. I have been asked to add .2m interval gridlines to our section view style (red lines on page 2). Not sure if I actually have to add linework or edit existing? I've looked for grid interval but cannot find it in the style?

Edit the Section View Style.

Settings Tab of Toolspace>Section View>Section View Styles>Horizontal Axis and Vertical Axis Tabs.

Set Minor Tick Intervals for each to 0.2m.

 

Also on the Display Tab verify Grid Horizontal Minor & Grid Vertical Minor are set to display.

 

If you edit the in use style the minor grids will appear on the existing section views.

Ok, it works with the horizontal but not the vertical grid. See attachment. All layers are on?

Got it!! On the Vertical Axis tab I had to set the "left" and "right" axis to 0.2. I was just changing the "Center" axis. Thank you.
