Let's say I have a movie with rating 2.5 and I should write this rating with specific star character which is ✪ (272A, http://jrgraphix.net/r/Unicode/2700-27BF). Is there some way I could use character style (or paragraph style) to hide half of the character to have a half star. It's not possible to create object of this character and make the half star, it needs to be a character.
I've tried hiding half of the character with borders, underlines and rules without any luck. Background of the page is white and hiding a character with white color doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?
