After inserting a checkbox form control in Writer and save it to a DOC file the checkbox label is missing. It might be related to the fact that it's exported as a MSO legacy control. It would be better to save it as an MSO activeX control, since activeX control has a better match with LO checkbox control (e.g. appearance, properties, positionin).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Insert a checkbox control (Insert -> Form Control -> Check Box)
3. Anchor it as character
4. Save it in a DOC file
5. Open it in MSO or LO
Checkbox's label is missing after reopening the document.
Label should be preserved.
