Default Stop User Dragging Table Row & Column Borders

Hello

I've set up table in Word (Mac 2016) so that it does not resize as more text is added; however, the user can still resize the cells by dragging a cell border. How can I "freeze" the entire table, prevent any resizing by the user, but still have the text in the table cells editable?

Thank you

Make the table in a section of the document that is protected. Place a text form field in each cell where you want text.
This on the Developer Tab.
