View invisible table outlines as gridlines

Image from store View Google Docs Gridlines
Description from store Similar to the "View gridlines" functionality in Microsoft Word, this extension allows you to view faint dashed borders on invisible tables (i.e. tables with border of width 0). Those gridlines will not be printed and visible to others, and can be deactivated via a toggle in the extension's menu in the Chrome menu.

  • (2022-01-26, v:0.3) RenĂ© Grob: Can't toggle gridlines anymore.
    I can't see the toggle button anymore and cannot remove the gridlines anymore. Now they are shown permanently.
  • (2021-09-28, v:0.2) Marakesh Jarvis: Gridlines not showing on certain documents
    Hi there, we were wondering if you could help us understand why gridlines shows up on some documents we load but not others? It really helps in our line of work having them there, but frustrating when they don't load on particular (not all) documents.
  • (2021-02-25, v:0.2) Felix Media: Not working for me - what can I do?
    Using the extension on macbook air on chrome browser. Have successfully pinned to tool bar and can see that it is "on" (green tick). The grid lines are still not showing up. I've tried toggling the button, I've tried restarting chrome, I've tried using a new table.

    I downloaded the plug in but can you explain how to get the gridlines to actually show up?
