To insert a character using a number sequence requires the use of the
ALT+code combination, not the CTRL+code combination. In WORD, typing
ALT+61692 does insert a checkmark. However, in most other applications
(such as Notepad, Excel, WRITER) typing this sequence is identical to
typing ALT+252 (252 is the modulus of 61692 and 256); this sequence
produces a superscript 3 character. If you want to insert the
checkmark, the only thing I can think of is for you to insert it in a
WRITER or Word document (the easiest way being Insert > Special
character), and to copy/paste the checkmark in your video editing

I hope this helps.
