How do you like my apple? ;-) I drew this  for a new personal character from information I found under "help" (top rt. button) in the Character Map window in Windows 7:

What is Private Character Editor?

You can use Private Character Editor to create your own characters, which you can then insert into documents by using Character Map. For more information about Character Map, see Using special characters (Character Map): frequently asked questions.

Using Private Character Editor, you can:

Create new characters.

Edit existing characters.

Save characters.

View and browse your character library.

Click to open Private Character Editor.* If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Granted, this little guy is...well...little and not the most perfectly drawn (looks more like a pomegranate, ha-ha). If it is in a regular document, I CAN enlarge the font size so it shows better. Unfortunately, I don't know how to code to change font size here or if it is allowable code on our board.

Woo-woo! Another silly thing plaything! And thank you Diane for getting us all started on this. :thumbup: :thumbup:

You have entirely too much time on your hands. Do you realize you could be quilting? :roll: :lol:
