How do I make a 'check box' bigger??!

  Boofys Dad 20:56 04 Nov 2003

Hi all.
I am currently working on a document (Word, in Office XP)and I am wanting to include some check boxes. I have created the form and added the said insertions but I am wanting to make them bigger. Is this possible? I have used the 'control' options but all this does is increase the size of the 'frame' not the actual box.
Any ideas?
Thanks in anticipation.

If I am not mistaken, the 'check box' is a VBScript component, in which case would have to be altered within VisualBasic??

In a word - No - (as far as I am aware)

However if this is to be a printed form for other than electronic use then make up your own boxes from the drawing toolbar.

This works in Word 2003.

Create the check box using the Fotms Toolbar. Then Right click the box and select Properties. In the dialog box that pops up change the size to suit.

Well done sir! It also works in 2002 - can't afford 2003!

Neither can I. When Mrs VoG finds out, I'm sunk!
