Not sure where else I can ask this, but maybe someone here has messed with this before.

I'm trying to edit a form that was given to me. The guy who did it before has blanks put in like this ___________ where names are suppose to go. There are about 15 in total so at this point when we need to add a name we have to go in and Copy/Paste in 15 times where the space is.

I know there's a way to add in text boxes and tag them together where when you type in the main one then it autofills it to the other but I can not figure out how to get it to copy.

We're using Word 2013 and I got the Developer's Tab up and can add a text Content Control box but when I add multiple of them and give them all the same tag nothing happens when I fill in the first one.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I can't seem to find anything on google about it. At least nothing for Word 2013.

Don't know how to do that, but couldn't you just do a find and replace?

Don't use a text control box, use text form field under legacy tools and legacy forms (not ActiveX controls).
This functionality is not particular to Word 2013, it's been around for a long time. The instructions look like they were made for Word 2003 but they work nonetheless. Note they assume a higher than basic level of knowledge of Word.
