Why do legacy checkboxes freeze text fields in Word 2007?



If you use "Legacy Controls" checkboxes in Word 2007 and you have plain text
or rich text fields, when you protect the document it will freeze you out of
text fields after you select a checkbox. It only seems to do this with more
than four or five check boxes and more than four or five text boxes.

Help, anyone?

Legacy fields require the document to be protected. Word 2007 content
controls require it to be unprotected, thus the two are incompatible in the
same document.
