Insert wingding symbol in front of text RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    Using Expression Design 2, how do you insert a wingding symbol in front of text lines to make it look like bullets.

    The wingding symbol i want to use is this: Ø

    I tried copy and paste from word and it just puts a little square there.  I can't believe Word 2007 is so much easier than Expression Design to insert a simple symbol.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

  • If you put the cursor in from of the text you already have typed, choose the wing ding font and type a character it should put the symbol there. That doesn't work for you?

  • Hmmm... try this:

    1 - start ED 

    2 - start Character Map and select option for Advanced view

    3 - find the character and font you want to use then Select and Copy it (button commands in Character Map)

    4 - switch over to ED > choose text tool > map font to what you have in Character Map > Paste
