Hi Team,
I am using ActiveX check-boxes in excel 2010. Issue is when I click on check-box its checked sign font appears me to changes unless untill I click anywhere on the sheet. It is quite awkward.
Is there any mechanism through which I could make it fixed, so that whenever I click on the check box its sign should remain constant means its font/size etc.
Hopefully looking forward to hearing from you.

ActiveX controls are notoriously unpredictable and should never be used on a worksheet unless absolutely necessary. They are known to change position, size, and cause workbook corruption.

Use Forms controls instead. They are less versatile but infinitely more dependable and predictable.

Thanx Zorvek for your prompt reply.

You are right and I agree with you on this but Do I have any way to fix there size/font/position or there is no way ?

You can't fix it other than continuously resetting the control in your VBA code whenever it is clicked or anything else happens to change the control's properties.

Be aware that even if you add code to do this you still run the risk of getting a corrupt workbook at some point as long as the controls are present.
