Font questions!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

A guy at my work asked me how to put a tick into a word document, so that he can have a list of thing's and then tick the one's that apply when sending out estimates for job's.

A tick, as in the tick that a teacher would put beside a peice of correct work.

I just imported a picture of a tick and set it in line with the text but he doesn't want to do this everytime he want's to do this, so the reason for my question.

Is it possible to link a sequence of key's, (like those you use to insert different symbols ie Alt+???) to insert a tick?

Would the tick need to be made an individual font or is there any easier way of doing what i'm asking?

Thanks in advance

You could create a macro for it.

Goto Tools > Macros > Record new macro

Then just do what you want it do eg. Insert>Picture>tick.gif and click the stop recording button. Here is one I found

Now set a shortcut button eg. Ctrl + Shift + T

Save it

And now everytime he needs a tick he can use the key combo to insert this picture

Hope this helps

EDIT: I have just remembered that you can create a tick using the AutoShapes Button in the Drawing Toolbar (View>Toolbars>Draw)

And also there is a Tick Bullet Point(Tools>Bullets and Numbering) aswell, so you could use this for the selected font
