I have no idea what the conversation was about, but would Microsoft sway work? I’m only going based on your ideas, Quentin. It shows up in another language here in outlook. Sorry if I’m way off base here.

I thought we had an issue for this, but I can't find it just now. These content controls on the developer ribbon have always been problematic in one way or another (and if not in entering them, then in filling in the forms they create).
So the other part of this is - what are you trying to make? Word is likely not the best solution for creating something like a form you want people to fill in like this. Something like Google forms are popular for online survey type forms. For something you want people to be able to either fill out on the PC, or print out, use a regular, ordinary table:
- Have two columns where the cell in the left column is the label ("name", "address", etc), and the right column is where you type your response
- For longer responses, have a full table-width cell with the label ("Please explain why you want to go to Mars?") and a full table-width cell below that to enter the response.
A table like this can be printed and filled in by pen, or you can tab through the table and fill in details as appropriate, and it will work for just about everyone.
