Personalizing Your Timeline View: How to Toggle Grid Lines

Discover how to switch grid lines on or off to suit your planning style.

Updated over a week ago

Every planner has their unique style, and at Timeline Genius, we aim to accommodate your personal preferences while planning. One of the customizable features we offer is the ability to toggle grid lines on or off in your timelines. This article will guide you through the simple process of adjusting this setting to either bring clarity to your timeline with grid lines or opt for a cleaner look without them.

The Benefits of Grid Lines

Grid lines are the subtle horizontal lines that run across your timeline. Here's why they might be helpful:

  • Visual Organization: They create a distinct separation between timeline items, making it easier to follow along and track each entry.

  • Enhanced Readability: Especially for timelines packed with details, grid lines can prevent items from blending together and improve overall readability.

How to Adjust Grid Lines

Follow these steps to make your selection:

  1. Access the Timeline: Open the timeline you’re working on.

  2. Find the Setting: Look for the grid line option within your timeline settings.

  3. Make Your Choice: Decide whether you'd like the grid lines 'On' or 'Off'. Turning them on may help you better visualize the timeline layout, while turning them off can provide a cleaner look.

  4. Save Your Preference: Don't forget to click 'Update' to save your preference. This ensures that your choice is applied and remembered for that timeline.

Updating Your Preference

Your choice of grid lines is a personal one, and you can change it at any time:

  • You can try working with grid lines for a while and switch them off later if you find they're not helping your process.

  • Your selection isn't permanent; you can adjust this setting as often as needed to find what works best for you.


Whether you prefer a more structured view with grid lines or a minimalistic approach without them, Timeline Genius gives you the flexibility to work in a way that suits you best. As always, if you have any questions about this feature or others, please contact us at We're here to support your planning process and ensure you have all the tools you need for successful event execution.

Happy planning!
