    How do I change the appearence of checkmarks for an interactive PDF (and make it work when exported)?

    Remy van der Geer Level 1

      Hello everyone,


      I'm creating an interactive PDF in InDesign. I'm using checkmarks in the design and i would like to customize the appearance because the standard checkmark is, well, very wingdingslike...


      I've managed to customize the appearance, but when I export the PDF things go south. The design looks good when I open the exported PDF, when a checkmark is ticked it's still OK, but when I click anywhere else on the page the checkmark changes to the standard checkmark.

      I work in CC2015, using Acrobat Pro DC on a Mac. 


      Here's a screendump of the checkmark in three different visual stages.


      Any help would be great!
