enter image description hereSince about 1 month ago, I've been getting random gray lines (only horizontal) in my Google Sheets. I use Chrome exclusively. If I scroll down to the bottom of the page, the lines disappear. But later they come back.

I'm getting the gray lines in Chrome and Opera, but not in Firefox. I have made sure I have the latest version of Chrome.

  • Can you supply a screen shot? Does it happen in other browsers? Have you made sure that Chrome is updated to the latest version?

    @ Ruben. it looks like it was the zoom settings. I was on 110%, now at 100% and the gray lines disappeared! thanks for the comments. It looks like 110% is the only setting where those lines appear. No gray lines appear on 125%, or 150%.

Jason is right: been having the same issue and going back to a 100% zoom "fixed it". It seems Google Sheet does not handle a 110% zoom very well.
