Re: "Check mark" symbol missing using 'evince'?

Since the two "No Name" fonts in the example document get substituted
with "Bitstream Vera Sans" and one of those fonts claims have an encoding

wrong font, although I don't know what the right font would be.

Try using DejaVu instead of Vera:

1. Install the dejavu font.

2. cp /etc/fonts/conf.d/60-latin.conf ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/.

3. diff -u diff -u 60-latin.conf{.orig,}

With this, a sample pdf with `radio checkboxes' show a "dot" when selected
instead of a hollow square. (NetBSD 9.2; binary evince pkg from 2021Q4.)

Hope this helps.
