Define check box zones

You may define a check box zone by proceeding with the following steps:

  1. Click Home > Checkbox.

    Note Alternatively, double-click in a specific area where you wish to create a fill text zone, fillable barcode zone or a check box zone; the selected field zone type is automatically created in a rectangular field.

    The tool becomes highlighted and the cursor shape visually adapts to the selected zone icon with a cross-hair in its top-left corner. Now you can use it to mark an area as a particular type of zone.

    Note Keep in mind that the selected area must be well-defined with no holes in it, otherwise the created zone can easily occupy a significantly larger area then originally intended, may resulting in improper template creation.
