    Why do the extra check boxes keep reappearing?

    Asked by elle_steiner on March 20, 2014 at 09:34 AM

    I only want one check box for each question on my form, so I delete the others, but they keep reappearing, which messes up the form. Why do they keep coming back if I've deleted them?

    Here's what you gonna do to fix the issue. Instead of completely deleted checkbox input, you just simply click space button of your keyboard to leave an empty input or space to avoid checkbox field to revert on default 3 options.

    If you need further assistance, please do let us know.

    They're still coming back! I just want one checkbox per question, but the other 2 check boxes not only re-appear, they re-load the 'option' text, even after I've save with a space. How do I stop this????
