I'm printing an Event List layout from my Mac and also from a PC. The fonts are different which is fine but the coloured circle with a ring around it is showing as a coloured square on the PC.

Please see below:

When I click this field in Layout mode, a pop up box appears asking me to select a picture. Any suggestions...

Sorry for the late reply,I Brian.

If you look at the definition for the field "DBk_ColorCalc" you'll see that we're using the following text character to draw that circe with a dot in it: Char ("9673" ) That character is rendering as a square on windows so ten trick is to find a character you like on windows and replace Char ("9673" ) with something like...

If ( Get(SystemPlatform) = -2 ; Char ("8226" ) ; Char ("9673" ) )

...where 8226 is a small bullet likely to show up on windows.

Other options, that may or may not work on windows are 9873 (a flag), 9670 (a diamond), or 9608 (a solid rectangle). Note that you can pick any symbol from your keyboard, just paste it onto the data viewer and wrap it in Code ("yoursymbol") to find its numeric equivalent. =)
