Ugly checkboxes

Please fill out these questions for all feature requests and bug reports. If you're requesting a feature, please let us know why this feature is important or useful, not just what it should do.

  1. What browsers show this problem?
    just Opera
  2. Please share an example project (if possible).
    any project, here is a screenshot
  3. Describes the steps to reproduce this issue.
    1. Use Opera
    2. Open any project in the editor
    3. Open the settings menu and check some boxes
  4. What does Snap! currently do?
    Use emojis for the checked checkboxes
  5. What should Snap! do instead?
    Use a more consistent design that you can find on pretty much every other browser:

Strange. Unicode has "ballot box with check," U+2611 (as well as "ballot box with x," U+2612, and "ballot box," U+2610). There are also emoji ones, but Snap! isn't using them, at least not on purpose. Do other sites' checkboxes look like that for you in Opera?

Ahh ok it looks like they do, so I'm guessing it's a bug in Opera rather than Snap! (I looked at the Wikipedia article for "checkbox" and it had the same problem)

In the next version (v6) we're no longer using unicode characters for checkboxes, because I've been noticing these rendering inconsistencies in other browsers on other platforms as well. Check out the v6 beta here:

Checkboxes in Snap! should now look the exact same across all browsers.
