Ladies & Gents,

I see some older posts on fonts and I'm looking for some updated guidance!

Are there better/cheaper subsitutions for Dapf Zingbats & Helvetica fonts or should I purchase? 

What do you professionals use when you need to use special charactors like a pointy finger, airplane symbols, or arrows ➣ ?

I'm just looking for some tips from the pros!

Thank you!

Sam

Any Unicode font that supports block 27## will provide the characters you mention; most of its glyphs were pulled from the original Zapf Dingbat typeface. Arial Unicode MS supports everything, but most Unicode fonts should support at least some of this block. Source Sans Pro, which we use at my employer, supports almost all of the 2700 block and includes the ones you mention. So does Minion Pro. And, of course, the Wingdings, Wingdings2, and Wingdings3 typefaces are strictly symbols and I believe are installed with any Windows OS.
