Word template check box gives an error

when i import existing word template for a report and edit check box answers, it given an error the measurement must be between 1 and 1584. what does this mean? and how to resolve it.
The word template has series of questions and for each question, there are multiple check box. How can i change the properties for all the checkboxes with few key clicks.

RE: word template check box gives an error

Hello Rajesh,

Thank you for your question.

This message comes up when Word runs a macro and different sections in the document have different margin widths.

Unfortunately, STL doesn't run a Word VBA course, so we are unable to assist you further with the coding behind this issue.

The best thing to try would be to make sure all margins throughout the document are the same.

As for checkbox form controls, sadly there is no quick way of changing properties of all check boxes at once. They need to be changed individually.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards
Marius Barnard
