What font does the macOS Character Viewer use? By this I mean the Character Viewer which you access with control-command-space.

(This is useful to get characters which look exactly like the characters shown there.)

  • Which version of macos are you using? – canibeanartist Mar 9 '19 at 3:19
  • The font will depend on the character range. Which characters do you need to match? – Tom Gewecke Mar 9 '19 at 13:45
  • 10.14 Mojave, and I'm trying to match the unicode character ✓ ('check mark') – tog22 Mar 10 '19 at 0:01

For any character you can see how different fonts display it in the Font Variation pane on the right side of the Character Viewer, and choose whatever seems closest.
