I am trying to make a form with a long document in it.  I need it to be permanent, so no one can delete the text from the form. I also needs to be scrollable with a white background.  I try making a modal form with a textbox.  I made it multi-line and entered the text in the text property.  However, when it is display the user can highlight and delete the text.  Does anyone know how I can make the text permanent?
