I have tried and tried and cannot get this darn thing to center in the box.  Look at the contact form.  there is a box at the bottom left that has action information.  If you look at the completed box the actual check box is to the top and left. I need it to go to the center from left and center from the top.  You will also see the line for the completed box is not aligned with the rest.  its weird,  I did the whole right click align thing and it does not work.

Try making the box small (the same size as the checkbox, and using the mouse to drag it to the correct location:

If I make it small how do I make a border around it so that it matches with the other boxes next to it.

Use a rectangle (from the toolbox) behind the checkbox instead, adjust the rectangle borders and center the checkbox on the rectangle.

As an aside, That box that you are describing which is giving you grief is actually part of the checkbox.  Resizing it extends the "clickable area" of the checkbox, but you don't have much control over how the checkbox is oriented within it.
