As many should know, charts may have "X" and "Y" grid lines. Inserting a chart in Calc shows a Wizard that lets you choose the chart type, some styles, title, axis labels and this grids: "X" and "Y".
The problem is this: if the chart is already created, there isn't any way to add "X" grids. Although there _is_ a button for "Y" gris, I havent found any option, nor button through "Customize Toolbar" that would allow me to add this format.
This is a bit annoying in my case, because complex charts are something not-so-easy to format. And if one has already created a chart and missed this lines, one have to delete this chart and create a new one, reminding to add this gridlines.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Creat a chart. Line, scatter, or any X-Y chart.
2) Don't add to it "x" gridlines. This is the default format, so, selecting some series, inserting a chart and accepting the first one the wizard gives should be enough.
3) Try to add "x" grids
There's not any way (or at least, I haven't found out how) to add "X" grids.
This lines should be easily added if needed, even if the chart has been already created.
Also: there should be a button for this action, since there's one for adding/removing "Y" grids.
Could this bug added to "easyhacks"?
Since it *is already* possible to add "x" grids to the chart, but no button for it, should it be easy?
Testing more things.
The file $HOME/.config/libreoffice/3/user/config/soffice.cfg/modules/schart/toolbar.xml stores information about the buttons (of the chart toolbar, of course).
there's a line:
Wich, clearly indicates the button for "Y" gridlines. I added the following line
below the first one. After starting Calc and inserting a chart, the new button appear, and it even has an icon... but saddly, it is disabled and so it doesn't work :-(
Received an odt file (table) without grids. Tried several options to insert grids in to table to no avail. Insert tab does not contain a grid sub, nor does view. On selecting print, no option is avail to show grids. Also tried Options Libre Office and checked bos re frids to no avail.

This bug is about gridlines on charts, not about tables :-). If you any problem with a Writer table, you should fill a new bug.
Select the chart. Insert>Grids from the menu. You can enable/disable X/Y major/minor grid axes.
Marked as RESOLVED WORKSFORME.
As for the Vertical Grid On/Off button - I haven't found one. Please file a new bug report as enhancement request to create one with your findings from comment 2.
Thank you for let me now it. I didn't even think about that possiblity. I will fill another bug about the button.
Created bug 66422 for the "X" grid button.
