    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to put an idea on paper, but I'm having a really hard time figuring out how to do it, and was wondering if anyone could either help me mindmap the overall design process or if anyone could point me to an available template.

    I want to create a checklist. For each evaluated item, you can tick a "yes / no / obs. " checkbox in it's respective column.
    If you choose "yes" or "no", the checkbox will plainly show an X or a tick, whatever.
    If you choose to tick the "Obs." checkbox, a scrolldown menu will appear with numbers. Selecting one of these numbers would, on the other hand, make the selected number appear automatically in a different box, allowing to chose from a predefined list of comments.

    Thank you all for bearing with the explanation :)

    IMHO, you'd do better to use a single dropdown, with Yes, No and whatever other options you want. That will obviate the need to prevent a user entering multiple answers for a given prompt in column 1. A dropdown formfield or content control can be used to trigger output in another part of the document. For a demonstration of this using:
