I created a 4 page fillable form in Acrobat CC. It had a lot of check boXes, eg: [ ] Yes [ ] No
But I copied & pasted a lot of them so I wouldn't have to keep drawing them one at a time.
BUT now when You check one Yyes boX, all the yYes boXes fill-in automaticallyY.
How can I make them independent from each other? Please tell me it is possible. There’s like 100 little boXes in the form. (SorrY for all the capital Ys & Xs for some reason I can't tyYpe a lower case one in this boX!)

If you copy/paste then all of them have same name and they will act as one. You need to rename them.

Instead of copy/paste you should have right click on checkbox and select "Create multiple copies" that would give them diff names.

You have to rename all of them, so that each group has a unique name.

 

If you want to automate it you can use this (paid-for) tool I've created that will do it for you:
