    Hello swindells,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question.

    Do you want to replace textbox question with a checkbox question? Actually it is not possible to change a field type of you question. You will have to delete the textbox question and then add a checkbox question.

    Please be noted that if you delete a form field, it will also delete the associated answers(submission data). The best solution will be to inject custom css to hide the textbox question and then add a checkbox question.

    Do let us know the form id in question and we will help you with custom CSS to hide the textbox question. This guide should help you inject custom css in your form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    We will wait for your reference.

    Thank you!
