moderated Re: Keyboard Shortcut for Navigating Word Templates
Thanks Brian, that’s good to know.
Just FYI: I’ve just played with some forms I created and found that while using F11 and shift F11 navigates from one form field to another and allows you to write in edit boxes in an unprotected form, it doesn’t allow you to tick checkboxes.

Unprotecting All Word Form Fields and Converting Them to Regular Text
1. You must first remove the restricted editing settings that allow you only to fill out the form
a. Activate the Developer Tab, Restrict Editing. ALT+L,PE
b. Activate the Stop Protection button, which is the only button. Just Hit Enter
c. Close the Restrict Editing pane. CTRL+Spacebar,C
2. Select all content in the document. CTRL+A
3. Issue the command to convert all form fields to regular Word text. CTRL+SHIFT+F9
At this point all form fields will be straight text like the rest of the document, and can be edited just as you usually would. You cannot reverse this action, so be certain you have filled out anything that needs to have been filled out before going through the above steps.
