    checkboxes and tickboxes (Word 2002 XP SR3)

    Currently we have checkboxes and tickboxes created.

    I would like the boxes to be more consistant/or the same.

    For example the tickbox has been created from the toolbar ControlForm.
    The checkbox has been created via Fieldcodes.

    From the screen capture you can see that the tick and the check are the same.

    Is there a way to create the saem style of check and ticks using the easiet solutuion?

    many thanks in advance [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    The second one is a MACROBUTTON field, which displays "text" or an image and not a control. I think that one is from WingDings. You could create an image of the tickbox you like and use that instead. But I suppose you might need to modify the macro to change the state from ticked to unticked, etc.

    thank you Jefferson.

    I discovered some really old code related to the checkboxes.

    The goal was to use Words "defaults", if they existed, as autotext entries . much easier. but I havent found anything.

    Just thought it would be easier to maintain then code

    If it aint broke...dont change it right? <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Sub CheckIt()
    InsertGlobalAutotext ("Checked Box")
    End Sub

    Sub UncheckIt()
    InsertGlobalAutotext ("Unchecked Box")
    End Sub


    Sub TickIt()
    Library.InsertGlobalAutotext ("Ticked Box")
    End Sub

    Sub UntickIt()
    Library.InsertGlobalAutotext ("Unticked Box")
    End Sub
