Need to use Checkboxes in Word
Posted on 2008-06-12
I want to send a Word document to some people and give them the abiilty to answer a question within the document by selecting from 3 possible answers.
The answers will have an empty checkbox next to them.
I just want the user to be able to select that checkbox with the left-mouse button to display an X in the checkbox, or a checkmark in the checkbox....pretty simple request, right?
I have used the View -> Toolbars -> Forms -> Checkbox feature, but it does not seem to do what it is supposed to do.
At this time, after inserting the checkbox into my document, I have to right-click it, and then select Properties, and then select Enable Checkbox radio button to display it or not. This is way too complicated from an end-user perspective.
There has got to be an easier way to do this.
Am I missing something?
