    Help, I cannot see the grid/timeline in garageband
    Dear all, I have problems with GarageBand. I have installed it last week and have searched the internet for a solution which I couldnt find. After starting up I cannot see a grid or timeline on the right side of the tracks. I hope that someone knows? Maybe a smart button or anything? This is just so frustrating... My hardware iMac Software iOs Mojave Thanks!

    Re: Help, I cannot see the grid/timeline in garageband
    So what's missing is both the numbers in the timeline (ruler) and the gridlines in the track editing area? Hmm, I haven't heard of that either, and I'm unable to duplicate it here (also iMac/Mojave).. In case it's a display bug in GB itself, maybe try toggling any options related to the timeline/grid, like the Catch button (just to the left of the timeline), and the Snap to Grid and Alignment Guides options in the Edit menu; You could also try changing the grid format (Beats, Time) via the popup menu at the right in the Tempo display area (top center); And I guess you could also try resizing the window, on the off-chance it might redraw correctly. (May or may not help, but it can't hurt to try) Other than that, there are the usual troubleshooting steps: - Shutdown/restart the computer - Blow out the Preferences - Reinstall GarageBand - Try with a different User (create a new user in System Preferences > Users & Groups to test, and delete it afterward) If your iMac is an older model, maybe Mojave/GarageBand doesn't play well with the graphics card? I hope you're able to get it going—please do let us know if you find the solution. Btw, I've moved this thread to the GarageBand subforum.
