    Gridlines Excel 2013 are suddenly off by default

    Whenever I create a new Excel file or make a new sheet, there are no gridlines. This suddenly started yesterday. I was working on some macro, but I wasn't doing anything with gridlines. And since there is no default setting for gridlines, I don't see how I could have done anything to get this result.

    The gridline colour is set to automatic. I know that I can turn on gridlines under View, or Options - Advanced. But that only works for the current sheet. Whenever I make another sheet, it will be without gridlines.

    I have found a workaround: Make a Book.xltx and a Sheet.xltx file with gridlines and place them in XLSTART. This works, but it has an undesired side effect: When I copy data and then create a new sheet, I can't paste anymore (the clipboard is emptied when I make a new file or sheet). I can of course first make the sheet and then copy my data, but I often forget.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    I asked the helpdesk at my work to look at it, they tried to repair Office, but it had no effect. I also have Excel 2010 on my computer, that works without problem. I guess the only remaining option is to re-install the whole thing.
