Default Word - Text Form Field Moving

First time creating a form in Word, have created Text Form fields, sized to
allow insertion of information, protected document. When entering text in one
field, the next field is moving over. How can I configure text form fields so
they do not move over when filling them out. Thank you.

The usual way is to set the form up as a table with cells with fixed
dimensions.
