By default, text boxes can accommodate a single line of text. If you want a text box to be able to accommodate multiple lines of text, you can enable paragraph breaks or text wrapping for the text box after you insert it onto your form template.

  1. Right-click the text box for which you want to enable multiple lines of text, and then click Text Box Properties on the shortcut menu.

  2. Click the Display tab.

  3. To enable multiple lines of text to be typed in the text box, select the Multi-line check box, and then optionally do one of the following:

    • To prevent users from being able to insert paragraph breaks in the text box by pressing ENTER, clear the Paragraph breaks check box.

    • To prevent text from automatically wrapping to the next line when the user types more text than the width of the text box, clear the Wrap text check box.

  4. In the Scrolling list, click the text-scrolling option that you want.

Note: If you select the Multi-line check box in a browser-compatible form template, you won't be able to clear the Enable paragraph breaks or Wrap text check boxes or specify options in the Scrolling list.
