I am creating a registration form and I want to place lines after pertinent

information that can be typed on. How do I do this?

Example: Name ________________

I can create the line but when you type on it, the line moves. I want the

line to stay in place so the typed info is on the line.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Traci

    • Hi,

      There is way to do it. It will mean a little work but once you done one you can copy paste in the future.

      Open the Drawing Toolbar and select the line next to Autoshapes. Draw the lenght of a horisontal line and start to reduce the by opening the Format Drawing Canvas form. Select Size and deselect Lock aspect ration under Scale. Reduce the height to about 0.5 cm and the lenght to your need. Move the line in place and retun to the Format Drawing Canvas form. Choose the Layout tab and Select behind text. Now you can type and the line will not move.

      Copy the line to all your other spots and repeat the behind procedure for each.

      Hope it helps.
