2 CUSTOMIZE SETTINGS
GridMaker provides up to three levels of grid subdivision — major, minor, and subdivision.
10 Squares per inch (3 level) settings are :
Major - 1”
Minor - 2 divisions / Major
Subdivision - 5 subdivisons / Minor
Tap the screen to reveal the Grid menu and see this paper's starting point.

It is easy to see that the heavy line weight is selected for the main grid. Later, as we adjust the colors, we will be able to switch every line to the finest line weight. Notice, all the grid lines are drawn with the Default palette green — the first color in the color selection row.
To use color emphasis for the lines, first tap the palette icon on the left side of the control popup. [A wheel of color palettes is shown because 'Unlimited Color Palettes' has been unlocked with an In-App purchase.]
Switching to the “Green” palette makes the graph lines a bit darker. The first color of the color row is still being referenced— but now first, darkest shade of green in the Green palette is used instead of the green, first color of the Default palette.
NEXT — We need to visit the different grid levels - starting at the finest (Subdivision level) first.
3 TWEAK GENERAL SETTINGS TO FINISH
Here is the page rendered into a PDF.
Now that you have a paper set up using color for line emphasis, it's easy to see how it looks in other colors.
To quickly see the graph in red or gray, just go back to the Color Palette and pick a different palette off the wheel. Find another color you like? Save it with the new color, or go to Settings to give it a new name and save it as another, different paper.
Create a new palette by choosing your own colors. Or, pick a palette as a starting point, modify the colors, then give the palette a name and it is added to the list.
That's just how easy it is to use color to provide just the right differentiation between the colors used for the lines in your graph.
