Checkmark as choice in drop down list


Former Community Member
Does anyone out there know how to add (to a drop down list field) a checkmark character similar to wingding code # ALT-0252? I need this for our Performance Evaluation Form. Thanks.

In Windows XP or 2K, open Characters Maps (under menu All Program -> Accessories -> System Tools), select font Arial Unicode MS, check on Advanced view, select character set as Unicode, and select Group by as All. Then entry value 2713 to Go to Unicode, click Select button then Copy button.

Go back to Designer, paste it to objects List Items or caption name.

Also you can entry it to MS-Word then copy/paste to Designer.

It looks like a bug.

Also Unicode U+2714 to U+2718 are checkmark characters.
