English term or phrase: tic mark
Hi all,

Anyone could help me with the translation of 'tic mark' in "Use this control to change the number of tic mark lines that appear on each bar".

No context I am afraid. That is what it makes it difficult. Have some ideas but not sure. Thanks a lot

Arriba no sale el símbolo de la tic mark, por alguna razón el sistema pone el signo de interrogación, pero se trata de una especie de letra V con uno de sus lados más corto.
Me imagino que lo de \"visto\" será abreviación de \"visto bueno\".
