WORD Forms - Text Form Field (1 Viewer)

I'm creating a simple form in WORD using the forms toolbar. I've inserted several text form fields, formated the background and created a protected template as explained in the online help. The form looks great until I go to use it.

When I begin entering the text in the fields, my "protected" background can be changed - but only by the enter key. So if someone uses the "enter" key to move from field to field, it behaves as a carriage return and inserts a new blank line in the form. When the tab key is used everything works fine. Unfortunately by habit, many people will use the enter key even if instructed to only use the tab.

Why does the enter key change my protected form formatting, and what can I do to prevent this?

Thanks for any advice you might have !
