I have created a doc that others can type in their info into a text box and

tab over to the next text box, but I've run into an issue that hen I type

text inside a large text box and reach the end of the box (the right side),

the whole box moves down. I would like to know how I can limit the text to

stay inside the text box created without shifting everything down. Keep in

mind that the reason I don't want everything to shift down when I hit ENTER

is because I have additional text boxes below it. I am using Word 2003. Any

help will be very appreciated.

    • Text boxes don't ordinarily move or expand when you type in them, and text

      boxes also can't be used in protected forms, so I assume you're talking

      about a text form field. These are usually curbed by putting them in table

      cells with exact row height and preferred column width (auto resizing turned

      off).
