TV Speciality level out of ten: 0. If you want to make certain that one block of text doesn't affect the placement of another, you can use a series of Floating Text Boxes or a Table. Doing this with text boxes is less trouble, but either way can be made to work. You can't, however, Arrow-Key from one Text Box to another. Jerry Message was edited by: Jerrold Green1. Nov 22, PM in response to lauragal7 In response to lauragal7 Thank you - so basically I can't tab to each placeholder, like I would on a "boiler plate" type document.

How to Generate Dummy Text in Microsoft Word

I will play around with the floating box - my goal is to be able to type in the placeholder text box without making other text move around, which changes the whole document. There MUST be a way to "lock" the text box, or make a box that can be tabbed to!

What Is Lorem Ipsum?

I know it can be done in Windows, but the whole point is to get away from Windows which I have to use at work. Just had a thought - maybe I can create the template in Windows and mail it to myself and then save it to pages, and then I can tab to the text box?

Basically it is a questionnaire that I use for work and want to be able to do it as fast as possible. Thanks again Laura. Nov 22, PM in response to lauragal7 In response to lauragal7 Ah, you didn't say you wanted a form. Pages doesn't have a function like that and importing Ms Word not "Windows" documents will not introduce it. We did discuss this sometime ago and came up with several alternatives.

I'll see if I can find it for you. Jan 12, AM in response to lauragal7 In response to lauragal7 Sorry, I forgot all about this question and never got a notice that anyone responded after me! I was able to finally figure it out in Word for Mac. Basically created the document, used placeholder text boxes, and then locked the document. Making a form in Word for Mac is as simple as choosing appropriate form controls from the Developer tab of the Office for Mac Ribbon, placing them in your Word document, and then enabling your form by turning protection on.

The text input field is the most common form field.

Question Info

You might have filled in thousands of them in your lifetime. Name, address, and phone number are appropriate for text fields. In an open Word document, place the insertion point where you want to insert a text form field. A gray box the form field appears in your document at the insertion cursor position, and the fun begins. Click the gray box to select it and then click the Options button on the Ribbon. I'm trying to make this as easy for the user as possible as there are some rather technologically inept people that will be using them.
