Fields in Text Boxes

I am trying to create a letter template in LibreOffice Writer.

Since I want it to work with windowed envelopes I thought I would create a text box at the point on the page where I want the address to be and fix it in place. So far so good.

But, to aid anyone using it I want to put a placeholder field with some text like 'Type to address here - press [shift][return] at the end of each line.

However when I try to do this all the field options are greyed out.

Is there some way that I can create what I want to achieve.
