Hi John,

Ok - well you are caught in a small user experience problem IMO - in other
words the application is performing as designed, just isn't all that intuitive.

When you created the form with the wizard a checkbox control AND a separate
Text control are added, as you noticed, and they are grouped together.

When on the other hand you add a checkbox to a form (or likely what you are
doing is opening the fields dialog and adding a boolean field to the form) no
such text box is added.

The checkbox control has a 'label' property - in the case of the wizard added
checkbox this property is an empty string, in the case of the control added
later the property is set to the name of the field...intuitive, no.

So for your newly added chekbox simply select it, right click and select edit,
you will see the Label property in the property editor.

I hope that helps - if you have further questions on working with form controls
I would recommend you check out the user mailing list, you can find a web
gateway to same at:http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Users-f1639498.html or
you can subscribe directly to the list.

For this bug report I will change the status to 'works for me' - If I've
misunderstood your situation please feel free to let me know here.
