Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting content controls, part of Word 2010: Forms.
We created our form using tables to provide structure and used borders and…shading and other table features to make the tables in the form easier to look…at and easier to use.…Now we're ready to insert form controls to capture data in our form.…We'll place a control every place we would like a user to provide information.…And the types of controls that we use depend on the kinds of data that we want to collect.…In this movie, we're going to focus on two specific types of controls used to capture text.…
I'm going to click on the Developer tab and remember that the controls are found…over here in the Controls group.…The first type of control that we're looking at is called the Rich Text content…control and it's used for text that we might want someone to format.…For example, if we'd like to ask someone for comments and give them the ability…to provide information in bold or to change a font color or to italicize or…provide a bulleted list, then, we might use a Rich Text content control.…Plain Text controls are traditionally, used for shorter pieces of text.…
