    How do I include a colon in Hint Text? How do I include commas in options for a dropdown?

    Unfortunately, you cannot add a colon in the Hint Text in the Configurable List widget. You also cannot put commas in drop down because it is use for separating the options.

    You can only do this in the regular input fields and not in the Configurable List widget.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Will this functionality be added anytime soon? Are there any other such restrictions for this widget?

    You can't use the delimiter symbols like comma or colon in the default value or hint text because they are used to separate the field types, labels and options as also mentioned by my colleague. I'm afraid changing this would require full restructure of the code. 

    I think there are no other restrictions other than this.
