I have a word document that we got from someone else.  We are creating another word document in the same vein.  

In their locked form they have fields (signified by a grey box) with different lengths.  Such as

Name:  ________________
Address: __________

When I try to create them I get fields of the same length (signified by a grey box)

Name:  _____
Address: _____

How did they get different length boxes?

Thanks,
JOe K.

I believe this is what you're trying to do. (correct me if I'm wrong)

It's hard to imagine what is being done. Could you post the original document, or the relevant part of it, so we can do some analysis?

I basically set the default value to a bunch of spaces.  That worked as desired.  Sorry about not checking on the question I thought it was open.

Thanks,
