Is it possible to have grid lines which can be seen over a contour plot which will help identify specific points to the user?

Thank in advance

In that case, right click in the contour plot and choose "Customize..."

In the Customize dialog, select the Grid Lines and click the down arrow cause the grid lines to be drawn on top of the contours.

I'm not sure I am clear on your question but if you are looking to add a grid onto a contour plot either you can double-click your x and y-axis to manually add reference lines (first graphic) or globally set your preferences>styles to add grid lines to your reports (graphic 2 and 3).

Thanks for the reply. Sorry for being unclear, I am actually using a contour plot, not a profiler. My graph currently looks like this:

I would like to have the gridlines visible over the contours contours

Most visual elements in a graph can be reordered using the Customize option from the right-click menu:

From the Customize dialog, select the Grid Lines object and use the down-arrow button to position it below the Contour object (which sounds counterintuitive - this list is the order in which objects are drawn):

Result:

Hope that helps!
