Is there a capability in 'Illustrator CS6' to use solid lines for the grid, instead of dots, while working in the outline view/mode?
You mean like this
@Larry G. Schneider: thanks for your reply and yes, it's fairly close to what I mean, but...
This only takes affect in the normal preview mode. As soon as I switch to the outline mode (Ctrl+Y) there are just dots, no gridlines.
You may have a look at the Outline mode at the layer level.
If that doesn't work for you, provide a sample .ai file.
