    Bullet Points Don't Display Correctly (Corrupt Font?

    I am sure this has something to do with font files but I can't seem to fix the problem. Bullet Points within Microsoft Office applications are not displaying correctly. I think the best way to show you this is with a screenshot:

    I have tried to restore default fonts settings in "Control Panel\Appearance and Personalisation\Fonts\Font settings" and I have also downloaded all the Windows 10 default fonts, right clicked, install and overwrite all files. Now I seem to have duplicate fonts with _0 and _1 at the end of some of the font names. I've also ran an sfc /scannow command but it didn't find any issue. Please can someone help?

    This might get more responses when posted in the Software and Apps section.

    Since I really believe this is a font issue which is related to Windows, I feel this would be the most appropriate section but if a mod thinks otherwise, please feel free to move this thread.

    Anyone? If this is not the best forum, please can a mod move my thread?

    Open Character Map and select Symbol next to Font. Does it display correctly? Click image for larger version.

    And can you define a new bullet properly?

    The Symbol font was not installed according to my character map but I have all the default Windows fonts saved so I reinstalled it (it actually said the font was already installed and if I wanted to replace). My character map looks indentical to your screenshot but my bullet library is not correct.

    EDIT: I can define a new bullet point (the small black circle type but can't find the other original ones, such as the sqaure bullet point I like to use) How do I restore the bulletpoints to default?

    I'll send over a copy of the symbol font on my system. Can you replace your existing symbol font with this one, please? (Tenforums will not allow me to upload it here, but I assure you that Mega is a safe website)

    Just copy it over to your C:\Windows\Fonts folder, replacing the font.

    It says when I paste your font into my font folder that the font already exists, do I want to replace? so I click yes and it says I need to have permission. I click retry but it keeps saying that access is denied. Any ideas?
