    How can I remove the 'Add New Option' from the checkbox

    Asked by BarbaraWilliams on September 19, 2014 at 07:06 AM

    I would like to remove the Add New Option button from the checkbox list but I cannot find how to do this on your forum. Is it possible and if so, how do I do it? The user can only select from a limited number of options, they can not add their own option.

    Thanks in advance.

    Standard check box tool does not have that feature, are you using the user contributed check box widget? This is the only widget that offers such function so I assumed this might be the one you're referring. If you don't want to use this widget, simply replace it with a standard check box under Form Tools.

    By the way, if you mean the "Add New Option" you see in the form builder when you add a standard check box tool, then that's only on the editor not on the form level.
