In my Affinity Designer, I cannot make the grid appear.  It does not appear if you click on View/Show Grid.  It does not appear if you go into the Grid Manager and do or adjust anything.  It does not appear if the gridlines are adjusted to be black and 100% opacity.  I need my grid!  This is very frustrating.  I even uninstalled the program and re-downloaded it from Serif.  If someone has a suggestion, please let me know.

Well, it turns out that if you choose to have the DPI set to 0, then the grid goes away and can't be made to appear. Curious.  I tried turning down the DPI to zero to reduce the size of the document when save.  -=Rick

I cannot set the DPI to zero in AD -- anything less than 1 resets it to 300.

Also, changing the document DPI does not by itself reduce the saved file size.
