Cursor with xy and crosshair display -- how to turn off?

I have a colleague whose Solid Edge has somehow had the cursor set to full-screen crosshairs with xy coordinate readout.  He wishes to turn that off and revert back to the standard cursor.  I've seen this somewhere before in the distant past but I'm dammned if I can find where the setting is.  The Solid Edge help is completely unhelpful here and returns no information on this.  Maybe Siemens has another word for "crosshair"?  I don't know.

Chris,

 

I think this is in the "Grid Options" dialogue box, while in Sketch mode..... [Crosshairs = Alignment Lines]

Thanks Sean, that was it.  All good now!

 

Siemens really need to put a list of keywords against each command in the Command Finder database.  Really pisses me off that it plays dumb if your terminology doesn't exactly match.  I mean, when you use the the Command Finder chances are the user might not always know the command name exactly verbatim!

I'd agree with the 'close' keyword needs, but also remember that the work involved increases by an order of magnitude with every extra keyword you want to identify for each command...
