    Default Can't Uncheck Checkboxes

    I have a form designed for a client that has a series of check boxes. None of them are marked as "checked by default". However, Once I preview the form online and check a box I can not uncheck if I've made a mistake. What am I missing?

    Acrobat 7.0.8

    Thanks

    are you sure it's a checkbox and not a radio button with the button style of 'check'?

    I have done the same thing! I have a series of radio buttons as crosses and once I previewed the form and checked a radion button, i can not uncheck it! I do not want any buttons checked!

    OK, I just got it... create a button to reset form fields, click it, then delete button and save form. How about a menu item: clear fields?

    Probably because some folks that use radio buttons don't want you to have the option to clear fields and if they DID want you to have it, they would either use check boxes or have a reset button.

    had the same issue: couldn't uncheck a radio button.

    Thanks to this thread though I did discover in Acrobat 9 Pro a "Clear Form" option under "Forms" on the menu bar
