Description Pierre C 2012-10-10 18:44:03 UTC
Created attachment 68416 [details]

there is no way to change the size of the square of the check box

this is annoying if you want to use a UI with checkbox

the only workaround i see is to change the size of all the other elements in the sheet... 

on example, on sheet 'Drancy' i want check box on all lines (column D)
can you found the only one in the sheet ?

they are very small...

Same problem exists with radio button

Confirming - issue present in all versions of LO since beginning of the project.

This is inherited from OpenOffice.org, which has never had the possibility to resize checkboxes.

Note that I am referring here to the checkbox itself and not the bounding box that surrounds the label and checkbox, which is redimensionable.

So this is AWT toolkit or VCL stuff, not really sure which of the devs handles that kind of thing ?

Changing component to graphics stack, as it seems to be missing from the AWT.

The ability to do this would be helpful for bug 99571 comment 12 also.
