We are currently updating Word templates of which several use checkboxes that need to be ticked by the user. These have been placed in the footer to keep the layout of the word document tidy. However for a user to be able to select the checkbox they must double click on the checkbox (which puts the document in draft view) and then select the checkbox to put the tick inside. They then must go to the view tab to put the document back into print layout view to continue creating their document.
Obviously this isn't ideal. What is the best workaround to enable these checkboxes to be selected with one click without the page view changing, whilst keeping these checkboxes down the bottom of the page?
