Webdings Font Problems


Recommended Posts

I can not get certain Webdings fonts to display.

Specifically, I am currently trying to get the Webdings chart character to display:


To display Webdings fonts in WinXP, I hold down the ALT key while typing in the appropriate decimal number on the num pad; however, whenever I enter "ALT+143" for the chart character, I get the phone character (i.e. "ALT+197").

How do I get the font character that I actually want?

Try using Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map

Can you copy-and-paste out of that app?

Oh, and this goes in the Bugs and Troubleshooting forum... moving.

Forgot to mention: I can copy from the Character Map, but I am unable to paste with v3.10 (even though the Paste icon is active).

I did not realize this was a bug. I thought I might be doing something wrong. Live and learn!

Is your Webdings font a TrueType font? If not, that's your problem; PdN only supports .TTF font files.

I wasn't sure. I know some older Wing/webdings fonts weren't...I couldn't remember whether they were now or not. And I'm at work, so I can't check...
