Making Graphics with Text Fonts:

In print publications such as flyers, it's useful to know how to make check boxes, checkmarks or scissors. You get these symbols with Wingding (comes with Word) and Dingbat fonts that let you add even more pizzazz to your documents with hearts, stars, arrows, fancy bullets, spacers and more.

A few Dingbat-style symbols come with your text fonts!
(These work with Times New Roman and Arial, but not web-style fonts such as Verdana)

Smiley face is Alt, 1

Heart is Alt, 3

Diamond is Alt, 4

Club is Alt, 5

Spade is Alt, 6

Bullet is Alt, 7
