    is there a tick mark (as opposed to a cross (X) ) shortcut on a qwerty
    keyboard that i can use to put a tick into a question and answer box. i have
    tried using the extra keyboard functions that bring up (i think) the extra
    symbols such as alt 0065 produces an hebrew sign (cant remember how to do it
    and this is only a maybe example). would love some help. just seems like
    everything in form filling is a green dot. this is just frustrating and
    irritating

    If you are using MS Office, you could try to create a custom bullet
    for a bulleted list. Also, deeper into the macro side of Word I
    remember seeing a way to insert a tick box. You would have to enter
    the developer view to get to it though.

  5. perhaps, your
    character map
    can provide you
    with some alternatives.

    click on start>
    run>charmap.exe

    once you find
    what you want,
    you can then
    use initiate the
    code directly
    from the keyboard
    or clipboard.
