Does anyne know how to add a tick/check box to a document in Pages? I want to write a small survey, and include inline tick boxes (a, b, c, etc) for responses. Any ideas how to do it?

I don't think it is possible, as you cannot create checkboxes in tables created in pages. Unless you want to create little boxes and align them yourself - rather time consuming, although pages is quite intuitive and will start to align things you copy and paste miraculously exactly where you want them to go, once it has noticed the pattern...

Importing a table from Numbers doesn't work either.

Have you thought of using Numbers to create your survey?

Why not just use a dingbat font? Zapf Dingbats or Wingdings have ticks, boxes, crosses and all sorts of diagram symbols. Use keyboard viewer to choose.

That is also a god suggestion. I will try both! Thanks guys!

I just love your visual posts Kuma!!!!

What app do you use to add the text and the arrows to a screen capture - Photoshop or something easier?

I like Skitch...it's so cool. Use it to put measurements on stuff I sell on eBay. Cool app.
