If you want the form to retain a pre-defined layout, obviously you'll need to allow sufficient space for the form fields to be filled in. You can perhaps best do this by placing the formfields into Word tables of fixed dimensions (no autofit columns and and settin the row height to 'exactly' whatever you require). That way the layout won't change as text is entered. By setting the 'maximum length' attribute, users will also be prevented from typing an essay into a field meant for a phrase. Even without that, using a table cell means that if they do, the overflow won't show.
Your table(s) can consist of a single cell or multiple cells anywhere in the body of the document.
