Create grey placeholder text that disappears

Occasional Visitor

Hi,

 

I can't seem to figure out how to create "grey placeholder text" in a table in Word (365, Mac).

i.e. a 1-2 sentence description that disappears as soon as a user clicks on it/starts typing. When any written text is removed, the placeholder text reappears.

 

Can anyone give step-by-step instructions? 

 

Thanks!

Simple placeholders can be created with MACROBUTTON fields.
