Default How do I fill in a Word form that's not an actual form?

Someone sent me a form in Word. It's not a real form, however; it is just a
document set up in Word to look like a form. When I try to type responses
into the form, everything moves around. Is there a way to type into this
form without things like underlines and other sentences moving around? I'd
sure hate to have to print out 11 pages and fill it all out by hand.

Either delete the underlines and just type in your responses or convert it
to a proper form.

Thanks, Suzanne. How would I go about converting it to a proper form? I
have saved it as a template and that seems to help, but I'm sure it's not
quite the correct solution.
