Hi Scott,

On card 2 of stack revIcons you'll find an image
called "menucheckwinmac.gif" which looks remarkably
like what you want.
You can then use the 'imagesource' property of field
chunks to place the checkmark image into your field.

To get a copy of that image, place a button and set
its script to :
on mouseUp
  copy image "menucheckwinmac.gif" of card 2 \
       of stack "revIcons" to this card
  -- after copy it's way too big
  set the rect of image "menucheckwinmac.gif" to \
      the rect of image "menucheckwinmac.gif" of \
      card 2 of stack "revIcons"
  -- make sure the size sticks
  set the lockLoc of image "menucheckwinmac.gif" \
      to true
end mouseUp

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
