    Hi there, I only want one option to tick in the checkbox form but every time I successfully save my form and return to it later it reverts to showing 3 options with the text 'option 1'. 2, 3 etc also appearing despite previous deletion.

    When I export the form as a pdf it only exports the 'wrong' version with multiple checkboxes.

    Thanks for your help.

    ps this is a great application

    Hi,

    Removing all of the options is what may be causing this.  If there is no text, the systems reverts back to the default options.  Rather than removing the text, remove the labels.  Here is the CSS to add to your form to remove the labels:

    .form-checkbox-item label{
    visibility: hidden !important;}

    Then just add whatever text you would like as a place holder for your options.  This will allow you to have the form look as you desire, but also stop the defaults from appearing.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
