    Drop-down menu including various size fonts

    I am trying to create a drop-down list in Word 2007 which would have the ability to select one of three items (different size check boxes) each being a different size of the webdings font.

    Can anyone help me with the step by step. Thank you for your help in advance!

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    It looks like there's no really good way to present different sized checkboxes in a Word drop-down list.

    For one thing, you can't assign different font size values, to different elements in a drop-down list (this is true for both legacy drop-down formfields, as well as drop-down content controls).
    In addition, it looks like Webdings font doesn't produce a proper display in either of the two types of drop-down controls.

    You might be able to somewhat approximate it by using a drop-down content control, and using different symbols that have a different size - for instance, in the Calibri font under Geometric Shapes, there are two box shapes that are different sizes - these can be put into a drop-down content control.

    What are you trying to accomplish with the drop-down? What options are you trying to present to the user? Maybe there's a different way to do this.
