Hi All!

I am trying to create a form where checkboxes can be linked (mirrored) or mutually exclusive (if one is checked the other should be unchecked and vice versa). I've been able to get it working with macros in the odt but the catch is that I need the checkboxes to have these properties once they are exported to a pdf.

Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

I am looking into having two text boxes have the "same output" somehow in the odt and pdf so that I can get the mirroring functionality at least. I'm wondering if it can be done with the data source in form properties but I don't really understand how this works yet. I also don't have a very clear idea of how to manipulate control properties vs form properties (mostly form properties is confusing to me).

Any ideas of things to try would be helpful.
