Some checkboxes don't appear in FilemakerPro 4.1

I'm using Filemaker 4.1 on a Macintosh. I have 11 valuelists in a relational document. It's not a large document itself but is quizzing a massive postcode database through a lookup.

Of the 11 valuelists, 4 currently comprise checkboxes. The problem is that the checkboxes for valuelist 11 don't display. The values are there and there is a space for the checkbox, but no actual box visible in any mode. I *do* get a little black box while the mouse is clicked in the area where the mouse would be, but it disappears when the mouse is released.

Anybody have any suggestions and how can I correct it?

Thanks in anticipation

Enter "layout" mode. Select the field where the value list "lives". On the layout tool pallette, be sure that the pen tool (usually the bottom tool; button 1 = "color fill", button 2 = "pattern fill", button 3 = "rule thickness") has thickness of at least 1 pt. Color should contrast with the background (for example: if the background is white, then the color should be dark or contrasting like black blue or red.)
