Hi there,

 

I converted a word document with checkboxes to pdf but the checkbox style it created them in is "Square". Is there any way to change all of these at once to the "Check" style without having to change them all painfully one by one?

 

Thanks for your help.

Run this from javascript console or put it in a button as mouse Up event: for (var i=0; i<this.numFields; i++){ var cBox = this.getNthFieldName(i); if(this.getField(cBox).type == "checkbox"){ this.getField(cBox).style = style.ch;}}
