T7I 800D No 3x3 grid lines

I'm new to Canon, and photography. Let's just say my last real camera was a Pentax K1000 in high school (1985!). I purchased an 800D (T7i) and am trying to figure out if it's possible to get the 3x3 grid for composition? I've looked everywhere and can only see the setting to show/hide grids. There are no options to change the grid type. 


Any help would be appreciated.

The viewfinder only displays one type of grid, 6x4.  Live View allows 3x3 or 6x4.  Nearly all Canon DSLRs are this way.
