Default Check boxes

I have read a lot of the posts and done what has been suggested but when I
try to insert a check box it just gives me the {checkboxform} or whatever
words are inside the brackets and nothing else. What is the problem?

Okay. I did alt+F9 and it changed that into a check box but then I couldn't
put anything inside it. What I want is for this document to be something that
can be filled out on the computer and then emailed to someone as a completed
form.

Thank you. I'm glad to have that site in my list of favorites. I think it
will help a great deal.
