One idea:

- Create or find a checkmark image you like, that looks good within the 
textHeight of your lists
- Import it into your app
- make sure each line of text begins with maybe 3 spaces
- use the ID of the checkmark image as the imageSource of char 1 of each 
- let your (now modified) script support the same toggle action it now

I don't want to rely on a specific font in case the user does not have that installed. Is there really not an *simple* way to do this so that it works on both Mac and Windows? I’m redoing a currently Mac-only app so I can release for Windows too and don’t really want to re-work all this if there’s a simple solution that I’m missing.
