Sorry, I am not sure why I said Structural Component settings.
You want Grid Component settings.
Here you can see I have only set the visible part to be non-transparent.
If background or empty fill is used, set a colour to the background pen, otherwise us any solid fill.
I think I mentioned Structural settings because I couldn't find the grid fill (it is off by default when not using MVO).
If MVO is off, you have to make sure the grid fill is on and then you can set the fill and colours.
