How to Quickly Insert a Check Mark Symbol in PowerPoint PPT
Note: Watch this short tutorial screencast or follow the quick steps below, that complement this video.
1. Make Sure You're Working In a Text Box
The easiest way to add a check mark anywhere on this slide is to start off by making sure that you're working inside of a text box.
Switch over to the Insert tab. Find the Symbols tab here on the right side.
2. Use the Wingdings Font
Let's switch the font here to Wingdings, which is a special font that contains lots of symbols, so that you can easily find a check mark. I'm going to scroll all the way down and now you'll see this check mark.
I'll go ahead and double-click the ppt check mark and behind the scenes the system will insert it into the text box. You can click the check mark several times to insert multiple copies. Click Close and now you'll see the check marks on your slide.
3. Insert PPT Check Marks in a PowerPoint Bulleted List
One other option is to use these check marks in a bulleted list. Let's click inside of another text box and find the Bullets option on the Ribbon.
I'll click the drop down and then choose this list with check marks. Each of these points in your list is going to have a check mark here next to it.
It's easy to set up checklists with the bulleted list check mark option.
