    Can you try to add the following code?

    input[type="rcheckbox"] {

        border:2px solid;

        background-color: white;


        border-radius: 20px;


    If this does not resolve the issue, please let us know and we will be glad to take another look.

    No change sorry. I'm supposed to add it to the CSS right? If yes, then nothing happened.
