    Cannot Get Check Boxes to print. (Word 2002)

    Hi Guys,
    New here so hope this post is in the spirit of the forum.

    I have a user who created a document with check boxes in it. It was created under NT 4.0 and word 2000. She now has a new PC with Win2k and Word 2002 on it. On the old system the check boxes would print but under the new one they will not. They are symbols really, character code 25A1 (unicode hex) from the Geometric Shapes subset rather than the check boxes from forms. They are printing to the same printer as before (laserjet 6p ) I have tried on other printers but it wont print to many other printers either.
    Any thoughts or tips ??

    Many thanks.

    Is it possible that some font file is missing on the new PC? If that doesn't lead anywhere, try substituting the similar Wingding (F02A):

    OK, I'll give it a look and let you know. Thanks.

    Excellent board by the way... I've had a great time browsing whilst waiting (a very short time) for a posted reply. Keep it up and thanks again!
    Colin.

    Thanks for you help...the fix for this was to go to the properties of the printer and select "softfonts" from the fonts menu...
