Can you elaborate further where you want to put the icon? If you can provide a screenshot that would help as well.


Thanks a lot.

I 'll do my very best ;-)

I got an Tabs in Tabs solution (Pic 1),


and want to insert into the Title (at the beginning or after the text) (Pic 2)


an light-bulb-emoticon (on)/(off).

But, when I try to insert it  looks like: Hochschulorganisation (on). (Pic4)




It turns out to be shown as a letter and not as emoticon (Pic 4-5, before/after saving)






Where is my mistake? What can I do? 
Thanxs for your support,

Best regards

Hmm. I'm not sure there is a way to do it with the macro parameters unfortunately.


Thanks for your effort.
