    First make sure that the problem actually is what you think it is:

    Copy and paste the empty square boxes to an environment which does use its
    own fonts.
    Pasting to SC UniPad, available at will do nicely.

    If in UniPad the text displays well, _then_ complain to Peachtree.

    By the way, the inability of Peachtree to _display_ those chars should have
    _no_ impact on how they are processed further.
    Unless the font for output has changed too the square boxes will be readable
    chars in the output.
