I have typed a message using a combination of webdings,wingdings, wingdings 2 and wingdings 3 in font size 26. When I highlight it and try to select another font(say Comic Sans MS) to convert it to readable type,all I get is a series of(vertical) rectangles. Can anybody tell me how I can convert my message back into readable words,please.
VOG, Thankyou for your very speedy reply.I have typed the message in Microsoft Word.
Rotenone, the yellow envelope is for personal messages. It is best if you respond by going to the bottom of the page and typing a response in the "Add a response box".
What you are trying to do won't work because different fonts do not all have symbols that match the relevant character code. Where a character does not exist it will be displayed as a rectangle.
To see what I mean go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Character Map. Select e.g. Wingdings on the dropdown list of fonts and click on one of the characters that you have used. Then click on the dropdown and select a different font and see what is displayed.
