Hi,

I have multiple 'Microsoft Form 2.0' textbox's in a protected word template. I have set the multiline property to True. When I print the document I only get a print of the first several lines.

How do I set this up so that when it prints it prints all of the text in all of the textbox's and reformats so that it all fits on an A4 page(s) using VBA?

Please see an example file attached.

Any help appreciated!

Can you use the plain text or rich text content control instead?  Seems to work perfectly for what you're looking for.

Hi JOrzech,

I would like to protect the document and make it into a word template. I cannot seem to do it using the plain text or rich text content controls.

Any more ideas?

Regards..

You should be able to protect the form for Filling in Formfields with Content Controls.
