This was easy in Pan 6, but it’s giving me fits in Pan X. When we print an invoice to give to the shipping department, there can be a list of instructions on what to include in the shipment, etc. In Pan 6 I use 2 text objects, one is a list of checkbox characters, separated by ¶, so that it displays as a vertical column of checkboxes. Alongside that, the other text box has a similarly constructed ¶ separated array of instructions items. Code establishes how many checkboxes to display according to how many instruction items there are. This makes a nice list of instruction items with accompanying checkboxes for the shipper to complete.
My checkbox array in Pan 6 consists of the letter “q” as many times as needed, in the Wingdings font. This doesn’t work at all in Pan X, no doubt because X uses Unicode characters. I’ve been all over the Font Awesome documentation but it doesn’t give me much clue how to construct a Text Display that will show a variable number of “empty box” characters.
