Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting a CheckBox control, part of Word 2007: Forms.
Every once in a while we get a new version of Microsoft Office, and we go…through and we're amazed by how good it looks, how easy it is to work with.…I don't know any Office 2007 user that wants to head back to office 2003, and…then we'll get to some feature that's missing and say, hmm, what did they think…they were doing there?…For example, I love the Ribbon but I hate the fact that I can only customize…this tiny area of it.…When you get to Word 2010, you can customize the Ribbon again.…
