    Hi Don,

    If you want default text to appear in the text box, that method won't work. You have to click the text box and then use either the Default Value or Hint Example tool:

    Default Value

    Hint Example

    The latter option is usually preferred but I suppose it would depend on your purposes. Please give them a try and let us know if you need further assistance.
