Word Document Updating

I have a Word document that I need to put an X into the box provided.  There are several other boxes that have the X in them.  How do you put the X in the box while still leaving the box present.  I did a copy and paste of a box that already had the X in the box but I believe that there is another way to accomplish this.  If you started out with a new document then you would have no X's in the boxes to copy and past.  Just highlighting the box and then entering the X removes the box but leaves the X.  Any ideas.  Thanks!!!  See attached document.

Hi,

go to Review / Protect / Review Editing

On the side 2. Editing restrictions choose Filling in forms and then click Yes start Enforcing Protection

Rgonzo1971 has it right.  Here's a screenshot and a copy of the document with the Protection in place (no password).
