Operating a computer is quite easy nowadays. We all click our way through our desktops, we all know how to open our e-mail or how to save files in folders. Working with computers has become such a common practice that we barely realize how these actions are framed by metaphors.

If you are looking for a quick and easy fix for symbols or icons, using dingbat fonts can help you save lots of time. Dingbats are symbols and shapes that are created to describe fonts in the position designated for alphabetical or numerical characters. Remember to take extra care on your choice of symbol. They should be understandable and intuitive.
