Create grey placeholder text that disappears

Copper Contributor



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?

Simple placeholders can be created with MACROBUTTON fields.
