you just have to turn off Design Mode to make the checkbox work.  On the Control toolbar click on exit design mode.  It should be the first Icon looks like a protractor and Pencil.  Now it sees it as a checkbox and not a object.
Right Click on the checkbox and select checkbox Object then select edit.  This will allow you to change the text.
