Character substitution deficient after Win10 upgrade

Recommended Posts

I use the character   ✓  to check off things I've done in lists I've made in notes in Evernote.

 

When trying to check off the "upgrade to Windows 10" item (OK, I didn't really have one of those, but in trying to check of a different item after the Windows 10 upgrade), I got a "can't find a font with that character" box, instead of a ✓.

 

On rare occasion under Windows 7 (which I upgraded from), I would get that box instead of the ✓, but not I see that all the items that had ✓ before now have the box, in the edit panel for the note.

 

Curiously, though, for a couple notes that now have the box early enough in the note, I still see the ✓ in the snippet view of the note listing!

 

So, I'm confused as to:

 

why characters that used to display ✓ successfully now display the box, even though ✓ is still displayed in the snippet.

 

why upgrading to Windows 10 would cause this problem, as the font containing ✓ appears to still be available on the system, usable by Firefox for this posting

 

How to get my ✓ displayable again

 

Just in case the ✓ isn't appearing by the time you see this, it is a checkmark character, codepoint U+2713
