Doesn't make sense to me, what's the purpose? I could see using some of that really thin (1mm) tape found in drafting supply stores, or a magic marker, to give an outline for an 8x10 proportion on the screen; but I don't see a purpose in "squares" of tape.

I've been waiting a week for someone to point out the obvious (doesn't seem like many people visit this message board). Putting an appropriately-sized square of tape in each corner serves the same purpose as placing individual lines on the groundglass - it will give an outline for 8x10 vertical and horizontal framing.
