Forms toolbar in Word 2002

ddelboccio asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-22
When using the Forms toolbar in Word, specifically the "text form field", after defining the maximum length of the text field and locking/protecting the document, I still need the ability to prevent that text field from growing vertically by simply hitting the enter key.  I can tell the field to only allow 10 characters and it will stop accepting text after 10 characters, but how do I prevent it from becoming multiple lines if and when a user simply hits enter?
