Hi Fleetwab, 

Inserting a textbox into a word document is reasonably

1. Open the Word document that you wish to add the checkbox to. 
2. Right-click anywhere on your toolbars at the top of your screen to
bring up the list of toolbars available.
3. Select "Control Toolbox"
4. A toolbar will appear in the middle of your document that you can
move around and drag up to your permanent toolbars if you are going to
use it a lot.
5. Select the checkbox and it will automatically insert the same onto
your document.
6. You can then move it into position by pressing and holding the left
mouse button and dragging it to the desired position.
7. On the Control Toolbox menu there is a turquoise set square on a
depressed button, this will allow you to exit design mode, once you
have finished formatting it.

If you would like to change the boxes name from checkbox1 (it's
default) the button next to the "exit design mode" button will get you
into the objects properties. This can also be achieved from
right-clicking the object and selecting properties.

The additional box that appears will allow you to change all the
properties of the checkbox, it's name, colour size, border, special

I hope this helps. 

Please let me know if you require any further information.
