I went into LibreOffice (where it won't paste this character from the pdf)
and used the insert special character to find the one that looked right.
I pasted this in one, and it does seem to be windings, size 12.
I then found an error in my maintenance routines: it checked for the text
font of the last char being "Windings", rather than "Wingdings" in a
So then I set a script to loop through every field n the stack, and when it
found offset("",the text of tgTg) >0, it sets the textFont to windings and
the textSize to 12.
I'm not sure I have the same character, but it sure looks right.
And something funny is definitely going on . . .
Thanks so much; thus aspect of my forms *finally* looks right after a
couple of years . ..
