    Nope, All one or the other.

    e.g, some can't be check boxes, while others radio buttons. All gotta be the same

    Good day! If you really need to change the Matrix Input Type, having the form source codes (How to Get Form Source Codes) should do it. But a trick should also be done inside our form builder.

    After having the source codes, find and change the "Class" and "Type" of each item. I have an example output here: https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/pages/tony.html

    Let us know if you need help for this methods.
