    Symbols in Word 2010 Drop Down Boxes

    Is it possible to have symbols in combo box lists? I would like to be able to be able to choose symbols of either:
    • A tick or
    • A cross or
    • A circle
    Thanks in anticipation.

    If the symbol exists in the font applied to the combo box, then I would think you could enter it using the Alt+numeric_code (e.g., Alt+0182 for the character). You might need to use a large font like "Arial Unicode MS".

    You can use, for example:
