Description chigye 2005-07-25 22:38:29 UTC
When entering in text input fields, rather than being presented with a pop-up 
box, allow users to type in line on the field. The pop-up box is annoying and 
time consuming to deal with. 

At the very least if you can't/don't want to get rid of it, at least have an 
option/preference to turn it off to allow in line replacement text.

This document is an MS Word master document we use for CSRs at our office. 
Attempting to enter any information in the "Aproval" field causes a pop-up box 
to be displayed, where the data must be entered there. We would like to be able 
to to type the answer in line on the field and not in this box. We would 
request this 'feature' be disabled or a preference to turn it off. It wastes 
time and disrupts the natural flow of editing a document.

If you're not bound to MS-Word format, you can use placeholder-fields instead of
input fields.
