How to create checkboxes, radio buttons, or highlighting in a memo (w/o Designer)

I need to send an e-mail out to about 200 people who will have to review it and either approve or change the data (using Reply With History) pertaining to themselves.  Most of the data variates greatly for each category, except for the 'Location' field which must be any number of about 35 static locations.

Since these will not change, I wanted to create a checkbox, radio button, or some action button (that maybe highlights the text, or marks 'Yes/No) next to each 'Location' so the people reading the e-mail could simply mark which ones apply to them.

I don't have the Designer Client (I'm looking into whether I can get it) and I am not very proficient with the Notes development side (@Commands), but could probably handle some basics.  Is there any way I could accomplish this?

Is there an easy way to do

Someone within my company called me about my ticket requesting Designer and explained to me how to do it.  Boy do I feel dumb.

She just had me select all the 'Locations', go to Text>List>Checkmark.  Boom, now they all have selectable checkmarks.  That's ALL I needed and I've spent all morning and part of yesterday reading about forms and fields and all this crazy stuff.  Unreal!

Perhaps you let AnnieMod get to this too fast.

That option creates a box next to the text... but it is not very easy for the user to use!  Boxs are on the small side, I think.

But to each his own.

Put of curiosity, how many points were here originally?
