I am designing a printed form that will be printed on paper, where the user can only put a certain number of characters per an answer. The form is printed off and given to the end user.
What is your Post Code? [ ][ ][ ] [ ][ ][ ]
The user's answer for this question can only have 6 letters, so 6 boxes are shown.
What's the best way of creating these boxes for the form? I can draw them in (using a box shape tool), but then it gets a bit messy if the form needs to be revised and re-printed in the future and the number of questions change (because then I will have to move the boxes and realign them so they fit with the question).
Is there a good font I can use to produce the boxes? If so, what font size should I set it to? Or is there another more useful method.
(I know I should just try different fonts and print them out, but I was wondering if there was an accepted standard)
I am designing in Apple Pages, but can also use InDesign if needed.
