    Word forms - keep text from moving (xp)

    Hello

    I have attached a form that I have a question about. This form may be filled out electronically or manually after printing which is why there are lines on the page under #9. The maximum length for the text form field for #9 has been set to 300 to allow electronic users room to type but if all of that is used, it moves the lines down to the next page and messes up the form layout. Can the layout be locked somehow to disallow the text (and rest of form) from moving down?

    Thanks much.

    Nancy,

    Click on the Show/Hide icon to reveal all paragraph formatting. Then, In this order:
    1) Delete the three lines following the field in # 9. This will move # 10 up to the current page.
    2) Position your cursor immediately to the left of "10. CERTIFICATION"
    3) Insert a Page Break (this will move #10 down to the next page again)
    4) Delete the paragraph mark immediately following the field in #9
    5) Using the Drawing toolbar, draw 3 horizontal lines, margin to margin where the old lines appeared.
    6) Type 3 lines of text into the #9 field and then move the graphic lines so that they appear correctly (select each line and using the Ctrl and arrow keys, nudge them into the correct position)
