I have the following list:- 1. Document library 2. Announcement list.

I did the following changes for the “All Item” view:-

  1. I change the View style from “Default” to “Newsletter”.
  2. Under Tabular View I kept the “Allow individual item checkboxes” checked.

But when I browse to the All items view I cannot see any check boxes, as follow (i include the settings i did, and how the document library is shown without checkboxes):- enter image description here

Looks to be a limitation on the view style, I've replicated the settings in 2010 and checkboxes do not appear as well.

  • then how come, they kept the option to select individual items , while it does not work on the Newsletter view !!

    Not that I know of off hand, possibly modifying one of the XSL templates, but I've never looked at this particular issue specifically. Sep 26, 2013 at 16:18

I've noticed that the Selection Check boxes only relate to the Default Style. (Sadly I think this is by design)
