When I go to config tab, I can get any map to show USNG grid lines, but when I try to go to print, they disappear and don't show up on the end product. No lines, no numbers, no tick marks. I am trying to create a 1:24000 to-scale map with grid lines that can be used with a map tool to determine grid coordinates. Is this something I can do, or is it an upgraded feature? I am willing to upgrade if I need to in order to get this feature. I need to create training maps for fire service technical rescue students to practice with.

    It's a separate configuration option on the PDF that doesn't carry over from the map viewer. Under "grid lines" on the left bar, check the box next to UTM or USNG, and set the dropdown to whichever you prefer.
