Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting a CheckBox control, part of Word 2010: Forms in Depth.
Many of us who created forms in Word 2003 and then in Word 2007 were…disappointed and even annoyed that there was no checkbox content control…provided in Microsoft Word 2007.…Word 2010 has a Checkbox content control.…It's back again and that's great, because this is a very useful control.…You'll use a checkbox anytime somebody has only two choices: true or false, yes…or no, a zero or one value.…So if I want to say yes to something or opt out, that's the perfect use for a checkbox.…
The only reason you might not want to use the checkbox control is if you are…creating forms that will be used by Word 2007 as well as Word 2010 users.…If a Word 2007 user opens a form that has a checkbox in it, Word 2007…doesn't know what to do with it, so when they click on it nothing happens.…If you're developing forms in this mixed environment with 2007 and 2010 users…for right now, I'd like to refer you to the lynda.com Online Training Library…Word 2007: Forms in Depth, which has a great chapter on what to do when you don't…
