Default Typing on Lines

So I created a document where I can type on the lines, I used the ruler bracket thingys..lol. I watched a video. Only problem is some lines are ok I can type all the way to the end no problem but then some lines go push the next line after I type only a few letters. I'm guessing the brackets but there are so many. What would be causing this and how do I fix it?..ugh. I spent a while one it.




Thanks

Had you sent the document itself rather than a picture we would have been able to see how you created the lines, but they look like text or tab leaders so you are not going to be able to type over them. For this type of document it would make more sense to use a borderless table (with bottom borders on the cells if you wish) to layout the text etc and use content controls for the values.

I would do it as attached as there is no practical way to achieve what you wanted.

I have put a couple of content controls in the table. You can complete the rest yourself. A simple method is to use https://www.gmayor.com/insert_content_control_addin.htm.

Well after 1/2 hour I can't even fine the content control. Confusing

I'm copying and pasting and that's working but then they all have the same "tag".

Edit: Got it I think. The developer tab wasn't showing, now it's checked and showing.
