Yes I was thinking I could do that and it’s easy enough. Just seems odd that such a common character can’t be easily typed in Windows.

For Clarence:
set the imageSource of char 1 of line 1 of fld "SomeField” to 1234 —where 1234 is the id of the image you want to use.

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.
