Default MIDI Editing Problem. Please Help, Album Deadline SOON

Hello all.

Well, let's start with the basics.

iMac 24" OSx Snow Leopard
Protools M Powered 8
EZ Drummer

My bands album is due very soon, (still have to get it to the mixer)

Either way, I am trying to edit the MIDI drum information and all was well until all of a sudden in the MIDI edit view, the grid dissapeared.

Here is a picture:


I usually could change it from 1/4th note, half note, whole note, etc...Now I have NO GRID and this very important so I can line up the samples. I tried clicking and unclicking a million things.

Restarted protools, restarted the comp, even tried a new session and nothing. Anyone else know how I can fix this. Any help is much appreciated. Please and thank you.

Click on Bar/Beats above the piano keyboard, just below the Selector Tool icon.
Not the drop-down box, but the actual words Bar/Beats.

Click on the Grid button.
It's just above 10/3/480 in your photo.

In earlier versions of Pro Tools (not sure about PT8) there was a preference to show/hide the grid in:

If all this fails you could try trashing the preferences.
