Is it possible for a user to deselect an OptionButton built into a Word doc? Is there something I need to change in the Properties?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The way option buttons works, once it is selected, the only way to turn it off is by selecting another option or trigger that programmatically.  You might as well introduce a "neutral" option e.g. N/A, none, etc which indicates that the user has not selected any option.

Sound like you should use a checkbox instead.

take a hidden option button

either through hiding by visible property
hiding behind any control
just by placing the control to the position which is out of the visible area of the form or container control

just select this control bye making its value = true

thats it
