    sn't there anyway just to correct the checkboxes in the form without having to add a plugin?

    Unfortunately you cannot do this using the Form Builder.

    Since the Checkbox field and Button Checkboxes were 2 different element, there is no direct way to convert the regular checkbox into a checkbox button.

    You will have to manually add each. But you can just copy the selection option as well if they are too many so wouldn't have to re-type each on the new checkbox button.

    Sorry. This was not my question. I wouldn't have a need to convert a checkbox to a button.  I guess that I accidentally appended someone else thread. My question had to do with alignment, and someone from Jotform had suggested I use a plugin, so my response was why would I need a plugin. Since I already found a solution on my own and fixed the problem, I will not move my response to the correct thread.

    Sure. These are the two that got mixed up:  Someone else asked the first question. I had asked the second one.
