    would like the ability to use the | character in dropdown options

    Asked by gtrusler on February 07, 2017 at 02:22 PM

    I need to be able to use the | character in a dropdown choice. However, Jotform keeps converting this to a new line. Is there way to do this?

    I will submit a request to our developers to see if this is possible to allow.  Currently the character | is indeed used to denote a new line.  I am not sure if that is something that can be changed.

    As soon as we have any updates, we will let you know via this thread.

    Is there a way to add some sort of description in addition to the field value to a selection?

    It is possible to add hover text to fields, but not to individual options within those fields.
