How to Insert a Checkmark in PowerPoint?

Do you want to add a check mark, also known as a tick mark or a tally mark, to your PowerPoint slides?

This sign often denotes a completed activity, a correct response, or anything that has been checked or validated. You may wish to use this check or tick sign in text placeholders and boxes, designs, spreadsheets, and even charts.

Fortunately, most versions of PowerPoint make it quite simple to do this activity. There may be minor variances depending on whether you’re using a current or previous version of PowerPoint, but the technique is quite similar regardless.

Check mark symbols can be used to demonstrate completion. Since status updates are often included in presentations, knowing how to produce them in PowerPoint is quite useful. In this amazing tutorial, we’ll show you how you can do this.

Inserting a checkmark on a slide by inserting bullets

You can use custom bullets to put a tick mark at the start of one or more paragraphs in a PowerPoint display. To add tick boxes as custom bullets to paragraphs in a text box or placeholder, do the following:

Step 1: Open the slide where you wish to add checkmarks.

Step 2: Choose the paragraph in a text box or placeholder where you wish to add check marks (at the starting of the paragraph).

Step 3: Select the ‘Home’ tab in the Ribbon.

Step 4: In the ‘Paragraph’ group, select the arrow beside the ‘Bullets.’ A drop-down menu pops up.

Step 5: Select ‘Bullets’ and ‘Numbering.’ A dialog box pops up.
Click on ‘Bulleted.’ A dialog box will open.

Step 6: Select the ‘tick marks’.

Step 7: The dialog box shows options to ‘Customize’ the size and color of the bullet (tick mark).

Step 8: Click the ‘OK’ button. The tick marks will be placed at the start of the paragraph.

Inserting a checkmark on a slide using Insert Symbol

Insert Symbol can be used to insert a tick mark in a line of text, at the end of a line of text, in a cell in a table, or in shape.

These are the steps to insert a check mark using the symbol in PowerPoint:

Step 1: Open the slide where you wish to add a checkmark.

Step 2: Place the cursor in the text box or placeholder where you wish a checkmark to appear. You can also click on a table cell or a shape.

Step 3: Select the ‘Insert’ tab in the Ribbon.

Step 4: In the ‘Symbols’ group, click ‘Symbol.’ A dialog box will pop up.

Step 5: From the Font drop-down option, choose ‘Wingdings.’ You can also use another font, such as Wingdings 2 or Segoe UI Symbol.

Step 6: Scroll through the list of symbols until you locate the tick mark symbol, then click it.

Step 7: Choose ‘Insert.’

Step 8: Choose ‘Close’.

After inserting the check mark, you can modify its size or color by choosing the ‘Home’ tab in the Ribbon or right-clicking and selecting formatting choices from the mini-toolbar.
