Checkbox and Radio Buttons form items disapearing

My checkboxes and/or radio buttons are disappearing when I update my InCopy links after my editor has made changes. My editor checks out all of the stories, even if they dont make edits to those specific stories with the checkboxes/radio buttons, they disappear. Once I recieve the file, I update the InCopy links and my form items are gone, however, it does still shows the invisible anchored object symbol so it would seem like the information is there somewhere.

Not enough info. What version of ID/IC? What type of workflow? Why are form fields anchored?

Screenshots might help.

InDesign and InCopy are completely up to date. Issue has been happening at least since early 2021 version so its not a new problem. The form fields are anchored within the text frame for ADA compliancy, to ensure screen readers and accessibility programs are able to tab through the content - the form fields are seeded within the text frame. I attached screen shots in the original post, they are radio buttons inside table cells - shows the before screenshot and the after stories are updated screenshot. (note: inside a table doesnt matter, checkbox and radio buttons dissapear within paragraph and/or table.)

 

Workflow: I design the form in InDesign, anchor form fields/checkboxes/radio buttons inline within text frame. I export InCopy stories. Editor checks out InCopy Story from Assignments panel, makes edits, checks back in. the form fields are still present and look normal within InCopy. I open the file in InDesign and update all InCopy story links ... radio buttons are gone.

Is the editor opening the INDD file in InCopy or are you using assignments?

Sorry, I can't help, then. You can try reporting it as a bug but I don't know how much attention it's going to get.
