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

    Remy van der Geer

      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!
