If you're working in Silhouette Studio and your virtual mat looks like this you don't have the grid lines on at all.
If you'd like to see them, go to the Design Page Settings tool along the top tool bar. Towards the bottom of the window you'll see the "Reveal" slider bar. Move the bar to the right and the grid lines and the gray mat will appear.
The numbers and the grid lines correspond with the grid lines and numbers on the cutting mat. By paying attention to where your design is on your virtual mat, you'll know exactly where to place your material on your cutting mat and you'll never miss a cut!
And here's a quick video to further explain how to use the grid lines for lining up material while making multiple cuts in one pass!
