You are working with a table ....by default each cell only allows one object inside of it. That being said you can fix your form in one of two ways ......add a positioned subform to the cell and in the subform put your static text for the number and the checkbox.......or add another column to the left of the checkbox and add a static text object to represent the number there.
Hoep that helps
Unfortunately, neither options are possible. With the first option, yes I can add a subform that contains both a checkbox and a text field however the fields refuse to be dragged next to each other, instead they sit on top of each other within the subform fixed to the left hand side of my content area.
Neither can I get 2 subform fields to display side by side, one with a text field and the other with a checkbox which is weird because previously I've been able to - that's how I created the expanding row heirachy.
Adding a subform also removes the existing checkbox caption and style, so even if it did work, i'd be in for a world of pain individually adding all checkboxes again. Both x,y, and height of the subform are greyed out.
The second option u mention is not available to me because inserting a column does not result in any action at all.
It feels like there's a basic function or understanding I'm missing out on, some 'trick' to getting 2 fields or subforms next to each other.
I really appreciate your help anyway.

Still have this issue. Anyone?
Ok. It's taken me 5 hours to work this out but for anyone on this forum having problems with positioning... essentially Livecycle is all about subforms.
Whenever you want side by side fields that contain different object types, create subforms that contain tables that contain fields.
When dragging to resize, dragging the subforms seems to work best rather than dragging any part of a table, but you might have to experiment with which side of a subform to drag to get it in the right place.
Most importantly, if your options in the menu bar are grey, it could be because you have not selected 2 or more subforms and with the positioning like align, this option is meant for aligning two or more subforms as a group. I don't think these positioning options are meant for tables or rows.
If you have problems with right clicking on an object and selecting 'wrap in subform' giving you outcomes you don't want. I've found I've needed to create a new subform and then drag it in the heirachy and add the object to it there that way rather than wrapping it.
If you are having problems inserting a new column into a table, try just adding your desired object anywhere on your page and then dragging it in the heirachy to be a child of a row object. The first child in a row object seems to display on the left by default. The second child on the right etc.
So I reiterate, subforms,subforms, subforms, and then it should work. Maybe.
