Many times we require a Check mark inserted in our documents. Many keep searching for this in the Webdings or Webdings fonts, then they copy and paste this in the document.
There is a quicker
way to insert Check marks - a Tick mark or a Cross mark in Word.
You should use the
character code of the Checkmark symbol. Remember that you will have to use the
numerical keypad rather than the QWERTY keyboard. There are a series of
codes that will enable you to insert these Check marks.
First you have to
change the current font to “Wingdings”
Now, hold down Alt
and use the numerical keypad (not the numbers at the top of your QWERTY
keyboard) and enter any one of the following combination of numbers:
- ALT + 0252 (without a box) ü
- ALT + 0254 (with a box) þ
- ALT + 0251 (without a box) û
- ALT + 0253 (with a box) ý
switch back to your original font for continuing with your document.
You can also
choose the Webdings font and use the following shortcuts to insert Tick marks and Check marks:
Type a for a and r for r
