Where's the "Tick"?

WinXP. The closest thing to a Tick I can find in all my fonts, is a square root sign? Is there a tick anywhere? Thanks.

Last question I hope! I change the font and tick the box. Go the next box to place a tick and the font has changed back to what it was before [defaulted]. Is there a way to maintain the selected font [Wingdings] until finished with?

Probably not , if you default to wingdings thats all your gonna get, symbols...

What I would like to do is put a tick in several boxes which are spaced about a template - just default to Wingdings until I have finished Ticking, which is almost my physical and mental condition at the moment....
