TTC Preferences or Settings

TicTie Calculate version 4.6 only. See our How to Check Your Version article for more information. To upgrade to version 5.0 please reach out to

TicTie Calculate (TTC) preferences will allow the user to customize or change default settings for Tickmarks, Cross References, Author Stamp, Calculator and Bookmarks.

Locate Preferences

  • If you are operating on a server installation of TTC the icon is named "TTC Preferences." If on regular desktop it is named "TTC Settings"
  • The icon looks like the image below. It is usually the second from the last in the list of TTC tools
  • Click the icon


  • The "Tic, Tie & Calculate: Preferences" window will populate



Tickmarks and Cross References

  1. You may change the default color of your Tickmarks or Cross References by selecting the radio button next to the color desired under the column the change is desired in
  2. You may change the default size of your tickmarks by selecting the dropdown carrot next to "Default Size" and choose your desired size (up to 4) 
  3. Because Cross References create links, your view settings may change when clicking the cross-references. This view change is referred to as "Click Behavior." If you select the dropdown for "Click Behavior" you will have three options; Fit Page, Fit Width, Fit Height. Fit Page will ensure the entire page is visible in your Acrobat window. Fit Width will "zoom" in so that the entire width of the page is visible (without regard to height). Fit Height will change the view so that the entire height/length of the page is visible (without regard to width). Select the option you prefer.
  4. The Tickmarks and Cross References are pulled from files within specific folders. You may change the folder path if you desire. 
    • If the field is blank you will need to change the folder path.
    • Default: C:\Program Files (x86)\cPaperless\TTC\TickMarks
  5. Click the text box to change the name of the displayed "Author Stamp". This will change the display of the author in the “Review Summary”.

Click “OK” to save any changes made to default settings.
