I am wondering if there is a way to keep text/data entry function enabled, but also prevent anyone from changing the border formatting of the text box?

 

We have people who are undesirably changing the border lines of text boxes when they complete the document. They have been told not to do this but continue to, and rather than fighting them and resorting to disciplinary action, I would simply like to format the cells/boxes so they can only enter the text.
