check/uncheck the checkbox form field

I'm making a form which a user will fill out and print.  Some form fields need a check field, and I'd like the user to be able to check and uncheck them at will.  With Word 2000, the user needs to bring up a seperate "Check box Form Field" window to choose wheather it should appear checked or not.  Kind of confusing to the user

Anyway to make a plain old checkable/uncheckable box form like with Excel?
1 Solution
The plain old Word FormField check box works like this:

Show the Forms toolbar.
Ensure that the Document is not locked by using the padlock toggle button. You are now in Form document design mode.
Click on the document where you need the checkbox.
Click on the checkbox (tick) button on the toolbar.
Come out of design mode by locking the document with the padlock icon.

You are now in User mode and can use any of the Form fields (Text, Dropdown or CheckBox)
