Checkboxes in Advanced ezMerge - MKB 0057


    Checkboxes in Advanced ezMerge

    MKB 0057

    The following problem and solution was provided by Buddy Booker. Thanks Buddy!



     I am using AEM to create a list of checkbox items on an AEM form.  The problem I am having is getting a checkbox to proceed the selections on the PDF file.

    For example, when a user select Hearing Screening, the resulting PDF output should show:

    (checkbox) Hearing Screening

    The user may make several selections and the result should have a checkbox preceding each on the PDF file generated.

    What does show is the path to the image.  I suppose this is related to trying to put an image in a text field but not really sure about that.

    I have also tried unicode but the actual code prints rather than the checkbox character.

    Any help would be appreciated.



    The problem I was having was font related.  I was using wingdings to try to get the checkbox character but AEM font utility would not recognize the true type version.  Not having open type, I found this url: and converted my version to .otf.  Uploading that did the trick.

    I now have checkboxes on my pdf file preceding my selections.
