3. Type in a name for your script and click OK.
4. In the File list, select the script you created.
5. In the right side of the view, type in the following script:

function display_tick_marks()


preferences.setBool("XSHEET_ANNOTATION_FRAME_MARKER", true);

MessageLog.trace( preferences.getBool("XSHEET_ANNOTATION_FRAME_MARKER", false));


6. Click Verify.

The script is verified.

7. From the File menu, select Play/Debug > Run.
8. In the Functions column, select display_tick_marks and click OK.

Tick marks appear on odd frames in the Annotation column.
