No.4 instead of ticks in MS Word

  eccomputers 12:43 16 Apr 03

I have just installed Office 2002 pro and received a document via email. It has a table which has 'X's and what should be ticks in cells but the ticks are showing as '4'.
Do I have a font missing? or is there a simple setting to change somewhere?

Best regards

Quite possibly, this happened to me a couple of weeks ago, and once I had installed the correct font, the doc was fine

Probably it would be easiest to ask the person who sent you the document what font it is in, then download it

do you know which font you installed?

Can you see the tick after my name?

  eccomputers 14:01 16 Apr 03

yes I can

That's a character in American Uncial font. I haven't found a font with a tick, let us know if you find one.

The font you need is "monotype sorts".

That's interesting! If I copy the tick in 'monotype sorts' and try to update my nickname with paste, it comes out a '4'!

Try changing the font in Word to 'monotype sorts'.

monotype sorts doesnt seem to be a standard font and in it costs $22.
However, I found it on my old 98 machine and copied it over. Brilliant, this is definitely the one I need.

Many many thanks

All down to you!

eccomputers, out of interest, the font is in my 2000 version of Windows.

Correction, 2000 version of Word.
