Can barely see the gridlines

I am very new to OOo. I have activated the gridlines on writer, but I can barely see them. So, I changed the colour to black, but nothing hapenned. Is there a way to make the gridlines darker and more noticeable?

Thanks in advance

Grids are dots, not lines. Try adding more subdivisions by Tools > Options > Writer > Grid ... Note how the horizontal line is more easily seen than the vertical. If you have a very high resolution screen with very small pixels, they may still be difficult to see unless you add lots of subdivisions so as to activate many pixels. Black on a white background should be the most visible colour.
