  • Check box - how does one make it tick ?



    Howdy oh l337fully knowledgable ones.

    I have a Word file. It's a simple chart with which I have filled with check boxes. Basically, I can't figure out how to make the little ticks appear inside the box? I've searched thru my help files, and read some stuff on ActiveX controls, but none of it makes any sense.

    The ticks don't really need to be attached to any macro per se. They're mostly there for appearance, and the file will ultimately be converted to pdf for hosting on the web.

    Currently if I click on the check box, it brings up a properties table, but not the tick. Please...for the love of God...how do I make the damn tick appear ???


    Many of the largest lumps of thanks to my saviours in advance.

    Hi,

    If the checkbox is from the controls toolbox it sounds like you are still in design mode.

    Cheers

      So how do I get out of design mode ?

      Sorry, I'm not much good at Word.

      Thanks.

        First display the controltoolbox toolbar.
        View > Toolbars > Control Toolbox.

        On there is a design button, which is the triangle/ruler/pencil icon.

          woohoo! Yay for Andy. It's done! Thanks man. Hey, while you're here, is there any way to get the actual box to centre? I'm not using any text, and the check box only wants to align to the left or right in the properties. Also, can I change the colour of the tick? Or is it 'be happy with black !!!'

          Thaaaaaankyouuuuuu.

            You can not center the checkbox within the control only the line of the document.
            If you have no caption you could set the AutoSize = TRUE which will reduce the white space around the control.

            I think you are stuck with black for the tick itself.

            Cheers
