From the Controls i Word section, select the desired content control type. Word 2016 supports content controls like Rich Text, Plain Text, Picture, Building Blocks, Drop-Down Lists, Checkboxes and more. In this step by step process, we will add Rich Text Content Control.
Add functionality to Content Controls
Select the desired Content Control that you would like to add funcionality to. In the Settings section, enter a Title and add a Binding. In this example we will make Content Control that displays the document title.
In the Visibility Section it is possible to specify conditions to which the Content Control should respond. Content Controls can be either hidden or deleted if the binding is empty, or based on comparison conditions, such as a binding that equals or not equals a specified value.
Click on the Create button in the Task Pane to add the Title and the specified behavior to the selected Content Control.
Review Content Control settings
The Binding and the Visibility settings are stored as Tags in the Content Control. Its Settings can be reviewed in the Content Control Properties in Word. To open the properties, highlight the Content Control and go to Developer > Controls > Properites.
