I have used this font to insert checkmark into cells in a table. The
checkmarks seem to be top aligned despite the fact I have used center
aligned. How can get the checkmark to the center of the cell

This is caused by the positioning of the symbol in the rectangular space
that is taken up by the font. If the symbol is the only thing in the cell,
you can lower the symbol by setting the space before for the paragraph
containing the symbol to 2 or 3 pts (via the FormatParagraph dialog).

If the symbol is inserted into other text, you could lower it by using and
{ ADVANCE \d 3 } down field before it and an { ADVANCE \u 3 } up field
after it.

In both cases however the height of the table row will be increased by the
same amount, which is something that cannot be avoided.

Hope this helps.
