Automatically Add Check Boxes when creating a fillable pdf form

Is there a way in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC to automatically recognize either a box or a line etc so that the fillable form you are creating automatically adds check boxes?

I know how to add individually but it takes a lot of time.

It looks like there used to be a "wizard" function in older versions of adobe, but can't find something that currently will perform this task

Any help is appreciated

Thanks, Alan

Yes, if you use a script that can identify specific characters, like this (paid-for) tool I created:
