This form has a X in the box for New report.  I want it to be an empty box.  This is obviously above my skill level, I cannot figure out how the boxes are put in there or how to modify them.

See attached word document.

That check box is actually not a real check box. Whoever made the document created a drawing of  a box with two line crossed to make it seem like an X. They then hard coded the picture on the document and place  the description box on top of the 4 squares. What you can do is move the Description box so that its not on top of the check boxes and then click on the checked box and remove it. Copy one of the empty one and paste it on the spot where the checked one was.

I've uploaded the file with the correction.
If you need to make check boxes look at this link https://support.office.microsoft.com/en-us/article/Make-changes-to-check-boxes-6e72246b-4c4a-489d-8e6e-17298d0e0cf4?CTT=1&CorrelationId=d29ee029-2101-463a-ac2b-c5d2ab809562&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
