  2. Had this same issue... I was able to solve it in my situation using a bit of a workaround.

    In my case, I had 52 possible choices (50 states, DC and "All") and each user can have a subset of those enabled depending on their subscription level.

    I was trying to have a blank (1 'disposable' item) checkbox list that I added items to... which failed... it may have worked with the pre_submission hook (I was just using pre-render).

    So in my case, I added all possible options (in bulk using the admin), and use code to remove ones that don't apply (essentially looping through the options/inputs and unsetting the non applicable ones). Since the removed ones look unchecked to GF, the form works!

    Won't work for everyone, but I'd imagine having a large set of disposable checkbox options (essentially blank 'slots' that you overwrite could work?
