When creating forms and reports, checkboxes should be centered in the space, not aligned at the upper left
Thanks for posting this. We’ll definitely consider it in the planning process.

You can move the checkbox horizontally by using using a Layout and splitting the cell the checkbox is in horizontally and then moving the checkbox to the right hand cell.
Desperately need to be able to resize checkboxes though. On high resolution screens they look very poor indeed.
I've not used some of the later versions of MS Access so apologies if this has already been done but sizable check box would be nice and generally can't see a downside to it.

I would also like them to be sized according to the font / point size selected. Coloring the check mark using the Forground color would be excellent.

Maybe even offer the option for a tick rather than a cross. Like the icon on the controls group on the Design Tab. I keep seeing that and wondering why it has a tick but the control it creates has a cross.
If possible a background color so we can change it on focus or conditional formatting.

I agree that the checkbox size should be adjustable, like the font size.
adding on to Mark's size comment ... currently checkbox size depends on Windows settings. Access should have an option to control it ~

ALSO - checkboxes need to be SIZABLE - or at the very least give us an option of small, medium, and large checkboxes (to make touch-screen interfaces more practical) and make the display of them LOOK better at higher resolutions on larger screens.

Better yet, give us the ability to control where it is aligned. It makes any report or form made with the layout feature difficult to format nicely.
