Issue/Introduction

In 12.3.5, the "Array" setting is set on Checkbox field in promptset automatically once the prompt is edited and cannot be unchecked.

This can also be seen when a checkbox is checked in a promptset at runtime, but the message "value required" shows at the bottom

This can cause some errors depending on how the checkbox field is being used in the process tab(s) of an object and throw errors like:

U00021719 Syntax error in object '[JOB_NAME]', line '0050'. 'U01001339 Array '[CHECKBOX_VARIALBE_NAME]#' has been addressed without an index or missing the brackets [].'.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create a promptset
2) Add a checkbox field to the promptset - expand it and note that it has "Array" unchecked
3) Save and exit the promptset
4) Open the promptset back up and expand the checkbox field

Expected behavior:
"Array" setting remains unchecked

Actual behavior:
"Array" setting is checked
5) Uncheck "Array"
6) Save and close object
7) Open promptset back up and expand the checkbox field
"Array" still checked
