Default creating a fillable area in a fillable forms...

I have creted a fillable form with drop downs and fields, but I have a couple
of areas where I am trying to create defined areas where the person can enter
a short paragraph of text. I guess I'm looking for a field which is defined
and the text wraps automatically to the next line(without altering the rest
of the document). So far I have tried a simple text field with unlimited
characters but the text does not wrap inside the box. Any thoughts?

You can place the text form field inside a (border-less) table cell whose
width is fixed.
