Suggestions for Creating an Attributes Table

russurquhart1
Hi all,

I have to create a table that shows what various users  can do, depending on their permissions.

I wanted to have a filled square bullet in a table cell to show that that attribute was available, and no bullet to show the attribute was not available. Is there a way to get that bullet character in a cell all by itself. Or do i have to use a graphic image and put that into the cell?

Or does someone have a better idea, or had to do something similar?

Thanks for any help provided!


Ryss

Asciidoctor can accept any unicode character, but the results depend on the font you are using. These all work OK in the default Asciidoctor font:


● - \● - Black Circle
⏺ - \⏺ - Black Circle for Record
⚫ - \⚫ - Medium Black Circle
⬤ - \⬤ - Black Large Circle
⧭ - \⧭ - Black Circle with Down Arrow
🞄 - \🞄 - Black Slightly Small Circle
• - \• - Bullet
∙ - \∙ - Bullet Operator
⋅ - \⋅ - Dot Operator
🌑 - \🌑 - New Moon Symbol

Or Unicode Character 'BLACK SQUARE' (U+25A0) and Unicode Character 'WHITE SQUARE' (U+25A1) if you want squares

MEDIUM BLACK CIRCLE 26AB hex
BLACK LARGE CIRCLE  2B24 hex

I tend to use font-based icons for this.
