Hi I'm basically filling in an application form which is a PDF Document and I'm using Foxit Reader to type in the document, I was wondering if there was a way to add a "tick symbol" any help would be much appreciated.
Did you notice on the Vid at 32secs, after clicking where on the pdf you wanted to type, a box opens up near the top toolbar where you can choose/change the font. That is where you can choose Wingdings font and on the pdf where you want to type a tick hold down Alt and type 0252
Try it out in Notepad... open Notepad > Format > Font > Wingdings > click on OK > hold down Ctrl and type 0252 and there you have it - a Tick
OK, I see you are in 'Ribbon Mode' whereas the vid is using 'Classic Toolbar Mode'
Ribbon Mode: Comment tab > click on Typewriter > Place mouse pointer on form where you want to create text box and leftclick mouse > a little text box is created and the top toolbar sprouts a new tab called 'FREE TEXT TOOLS, COMMENT FORMAT' and you can change the font
If you want to change to Classic Toolbar: Open Foxit > FILE tab > in left pane menu, click on 'Change Toolbar Mode' > Choose the 'Classic Toolbar Mode' > you will be promted to restart Foxit, so restart it. Now your top toolbar will match the Video.
Leftclick on 'Comments' tab > scroll down menu to 'Typewriter' and in the side menu click on 'Typewriter'
Put your mouse cursor in the box where you want the tick and leftclick mouse, this will create a little text box for you to type in and the 'Format' window will pop up for you to choose the font to use in the text box (as per the video)
When you have finished typing in the text box you created click on 'Esc' on your keyboard or mouseclick the hand icon on the the top toolbar in Foxit.
The text box can be resized by clicking on its border and you get the little square bits that you can drag to resize, or if you want to get rid of text box press Delete on keyboard.
Note: I do not know how to change the font for the normal pre-set interactive typing, I think that is set by the designer of the form.
