If you want to create an object that looks something like graph paper or a spreadsheet grid, you can use the new Graph Paper Tool.
Select the Graph Paper tool from the Object toolbox flyout (Figure 5.14).
The pointer changes to a cross-hair with a tiny grid attached to it.
Figure 5.14. Select the Graph Paper Tool from the Object toolbox flyout.
In the property bar text boxes, specify the number of columns and rows for the grid (Figure 5.15).
