I have Conditional fields installed, with a checkbox as the dependency which shows two textareas when checked. The issue is when viewing the content type, the checkbox is NOT checked and the text areas still show up. I have checked in Manage Dependencies and the dependants are required and visible when checkbox field is checked.

Is there another place to adjust these settings, if so where would I look?

This is a quirk of the module, per the documentation on the view context:

The "Value", "Filled" and "Empty" conditions are special: they are the only conditions that have ANY effect on form validation and content view.

If you want to show/hide fields with the module during content display, you'll need to set the Condition to Value and the according value for your checkbox.
