Perhaps then the inability to see the gridlines is due to my Windows custom
color configuration. I use a rather greige active window. I will have to
try some other color schemes to see if that is the problem. I can see them
in Lists, however, which also have a greige palette.

Cheri,

I also have the gridlines showing, but they are very feint, I really have to
look hard in order to see them.

Julia - The first thing that you have to do to get the blank basic events is
to go to the Event Template (I finally figured this one out) and assign what
events you want in the Basic group. But beware -- once assigned they
*cannot* be removed as Wim and I have both discovered. I am sure this a
kink that will get ironed out.

How the heck did you get gridlines on the Children and Event boxes on the
Summary Page? They don't display for me, despite having put a checkmark by
*both* gridlines options.

Well I must be doing it too, as BMDB are not first for me either...

I was also under the impression that blank basic events would be created
for those that do not have them, but I cannot see them either.

Is there a magic step we have missed?

Also, I cannot as yet successfully search for blank events using (!). I
just keep getting the no matches found dialog. The same search using (*)
does work, so I don't think it is the way I have set it up. <g>

Btw, love the new summary page columns. I do now have grid lines on both
the children and the event boxes on that tab, and very nice they look
too..

I must be doing something incorrect, because the Basic Events (BMDB) are
*not* displaying first despite having selected this Preference and
closing and reopening the program. I have dates and sometimes sort
dates for these events; does that affect whether or not they will
display first?

Re the grid lines. I have checked this option for both instances. Am I
wrong to assume that in the Summary View, the events at the bottom would
have grid lines? I didn't quite understand what the gridlines affected
other than the Lists.
