Prior to 1.7,  I could create cells with grid lines with the Grid and Axis Manager via Gutters. In 1.7, Gutters have been removed from the Grid and Axis Manager and Columns have been added to Guides Manager. So now I can create cells via Columns in the Guides Manager but how do I create grid lines within each cell?

Hi, it wouldn't be possible without gutters in the grid system as well, they should bring it back, I think they should also consider whether you have margins set.

As a workaround, you could create rectangles. You could create a rectangle to fit the column width and the row height, from here if each rectangle (Cell) is going to be the same, you could make it a symbol so that you can edit them en masse else just duplicate the rectangle (Cell) downward to fit and then duplicate that column of rectangle (Cell)s across.

example file.afdesign Saved with history so you can jog back and forth in the history panel.
