Graphics

Post by BobH »

I need to find graphics like the ones in the screenshot for use in Word and Excel, but I need to be able to change their color. I've tried to change the font color for these without success.

I found these by searching but can't seem to find any that I can control the color of.

Anyone have a (free) source?

:cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:

A tedious way to do it would be to open the graphic file in MS Paint and select the 'flood fill' tool , i.e. the paint can icon, and select the colour you want then click on each black area to fill it with that colour.

50 little men, each comprising 3 areas, that's 'only' 150 clicks :smile:

The Webdings font contains some characters like this. Since they are characters, you can change their size and color:

Thank you, Ken; but my attention span is no longer that long. :hairout:

Mr. V., thank you. I looked through fonts but there are so many I must have missed those characters in Webdings. The use of such characters is so pervasive I felt sure there must be a source that I couldn't find.

Thank you, both, again. :cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:
