openoffice question


okay this is frustrating. i'm trying to fill out a job application in open office that has check boxes and can't figure out how to put checks in the boxes other than right-clicking on them every time, clicking control, and changing the default status to selected. there's got to be an easier way...

also, when i click on a text field to type something in it, a popup text box opens every time. i'd rather just type the text in directly without this popping up. it's taking a lot more time to do this.

i posted this on the openoffice.org forums, and was able to get some help. i added the design on/off button to one of toolbars; it was under the controls group of available buttons. the text input popup box still comes up, but that's a little easier to deal with.
