How to Insert a Checkbox in Word 2004 for Mac


If you've recently switched from a Windows-based PC to an Apple computer (known as a Mac), you'll be happy to know some familiar software can follow you to your new computer. Microsoft produces its Office productivity suite for Macs. There have been several iterations of this software throughout the years, including Office for Mac 2011. Office for Mac 2004 users with a document requiring check boxes, can create them in the file with just a little navigation through the program's menu.

  • Open Word 2004 and open the file that requires a check box.

  • Click your mouse cursor at the spot in your document where you want the check box to appear.

  • Click the "Insert" option at the top of the computer screen. This opens a drop-down menu. Select "Symbol." The "Symbol" window appears with a chart of possible symbols to choose from.

  • Select "AppleGothic" in the "Font" drop-down menu.

  • Scroll through the symbols until you arrive at "AppleGothic character 166 (Unicode character 9634)." The symbol names appear under the chart of symbols as you scroll. This particular one is a check box. Click this symbol; a blue preview window will pop up.

  • Click the "Insert" button at the bottom of the "Symbol" window. You have now added a check box to your document.
