       That's because LO is compatible;
            opening a document in LO is handled differently from

       If you're looking for a reason for this;
            well, some of these folks on this list should be able to help

           sorry, I'm not one of these gurus  ;-)

       In fact, my most recent computer problem arose a few months ago -
            when sending out a newsletter,
          I do not attach anything although I do often include URLs ...
           how some of these URLs appear as attachments to the receiver has
me stumped.

Thanks, a table could be configured.
The interesting part is that I could save the document as an odt file and
the tick boxes still worked as an odt file, even after closing and opening.
I just couldn't copy the tick boxes to another odt file.
Cheers, steve

        BTW - copying/pasting from Word won't work since MSFT continually
sets their own coding to be non compatible with others  ;-(

Is there a way to add a check box (click it and a tick or x appears, click
it again and it becomes empty) to a writer document. This does not need to
be a form.
Word has these and they work in LO when I open the word doc but I can't
copy paste one to a writer document.

Form controls are not easy to use keep crashing my LO 4.3 when I change the
anchor method so I don't know how robust that option is.
