Hi Kimberly,

Following the steps suggested by community expert, you can add the checkbox to the existing Form. However, you need to make sure that document properties allows you to edit the form.

If you are the owner of the form, then there shouldn't be any trouble. If not, then you may first Open PDF>right click Document Properties>Security> changing the document is allowed or not.

 

To learn more about the PDF forms, please go through this help article: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/create-form.html#Howtocreateaformfromscratch

 

Thanks,

Akanchha
