Create an Interactive PDF with a "Check Only One" Checkbox List

Hello,

 

I'm familiar with creating interactive form PDFs with InDesign, but I'm stumped on creating a checkbox list where you can only choose one option in the set. That way, there's no confusion if they accidentally click both checkboxes in the field (thus if they click one or the other, the previous clicked box erases the checkbox...make sense?)

 

Thanks in advance!

I thin that what you are looking for is a radio button. You have to name them so they are linked.

You can do this with a checkbox.

 

The key is to name all your checkboxes in the set with the same name, but give them each a different 'export value' in the options tab. This will give you the behaviour you want.
