Re: Grid lines

Switch to one of the creative modes. -P Av Tv or M. 

If you are in Green Square many options are unavailable.

To add to John's advice, if you're talking about Live View mode grid lines, then you may need to switch to Live View to see the LIve View menu.

Hello Narosh,


I have an EOS Rebel SL2 also. You have to be in Live View mode to access the 5th menu screen just as Waddizzle said. Check page 209 in the manual.
