I have inserted option buttons into a microsoft word document, but I am having problems with them. I have inserted multiple option buttons so that people will be able to choose their answers. When you click on one and then another, the previous button d

oes not stay chosen. How do I get the option buttons to stay chosen once they have been clicked?

    • The idea of option buttons is that they are intended to be mutually

      exclusive. Try checkboxes instead.

    • Or, if you really want to make several groups, each with

      a mutually exclusive answer, assign each set a

      GroupName. Do this by right clicking one of them, and

      selecting "Properties" to open the Properties window.

      Find the Property named "GroupName" and put something in

      it. Out of all the option buttons with a particular

      GroupName, only one is allowed to be selected.
