Hello,

 

I have an excel workbook with macros that uses ActiveX checkboxes and dropdowns. I've had a few colleagues mention a strange "glitch" is happening with these workbooks. They have 2 devices, one "big" screen computer and one laptop. When they use the workbook on their laptop, the ActiveX controls all work perfectly fine however, when they try to transfer it to their bigger screen and use it there, ONLY the checkboxes aren't working while the dropdowns all work for them. They can't select or deselect with the checkboxes. No error message pops up, no "enable content" message either. Just unresponsive. Would anyone know what could be causing this issue?
